Cosmopolis is a 2012 drama film starring Robert Pattinson, directed by David Cronenberg. It is based on the novel of the same name by Don DeLillo. On May 25, 2012, the film premiered in competition for the Palme d'Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, drawing mixed early critical reactions. The film is scheduled to have a limited release in the United States on August 17, 2012. Billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) rides slowly across Manhattan in his limousine that he uses as his office while on his way to his preferred barber, even though there are traffic jams. They are caused by a visit of the president of the United States and by the funeral of Eric's favorite musician, whose music he plays in one of his two private elevators. He has recently married. In the car and elsewhere he has meetings with his wife, who does not want sex with him, to save energy she needs for her work. Instead he has sex with other women. In his car, while having a meeting, he has his doctor carry out his daily medical checkup; Eric worries about the doctor's finding that he has an asymmetrical prostate.
