Movie synopsis
This unique film takes place in 1953, and explores such themes as fame and emotional detachment. The four disparate main characters -- The Professor, The Actress, The Senator, and The Ballplayer, are thinly-veiled versions of Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Joseph McCarthy and Joe DiMaggio, respectively. When they all wind up in the same hotel room one night, the quartets' interactions with one another reveal fascinating aspects of their personalities, including vulnerability, naivete and guilt. But sadly, one trait is common to all four characters: despair.
