PopRally invites you to join Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Uma Thurman, Stacy Martin, and Christian Slater for the U.S. premiere of the film Nymphomaniac: Volume 1, written and directed by Lars von Trier.
Nymphomaniac: Volume 1 is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered, badly beaten in an alley, by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young adulthood (portrayed in flashback by newcomer Stacy Martin). Volume 1 also stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen, and Udo Kier.
Magnolia Pictures will release Nymphomaniac: Volume 1 on March 21 and Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 on April 4.
