CENTER OF THE WORLD is an erotic drama about a young computer wizard Richard (Peter Sarsgaard - BOYS DON'T CRY), whose immersion in the digital world has left him unaccustomed to normal social interaction. When he persuades a beautiful stripper Florence (Molly Parker - KISSED) to spend three days with him in Las Vegas, their arrangement becomes a journey into the dark secrets of their sexuality.
Shot on digital video, the film reunites director Wayne Wang with SMOKE and BLUE IN THE FACE collaborator Paul Auster, who co-wrote the script with his wife, author Siri Hustvedt.
