Welcome to Marwen

HBO | 8:00 pm

Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis brought his trademark visual wizardry to this decidedly odd 2018 drama which, nevertheless, is based on a true story. Steve Carell stars as Mark Hoganscamp, who creates a model village (named Marwen) peopled by fashion dolls as a means of coping with acute memory loss and devastating post-traumatic stress disorder after he suffers a brutal assault by a gang of white supremacists. Leslie Mann, Diane Kruger, Merritt Wever, Janelle Monae and Gwendoline Christie also star.
