1930s Hollywood is re-evaluated through the eyes of scathing wit and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish Citizen Kane.

This is David Fincher’s first feature film since 2014’s Gone Girl. A long-in-the-works passion project for Fincher as his father, Jack, wrote the screenplay before passing away in April 2003.

The story centres on Mankiewicz, the Oscar-winning co-writer of Citizen Kane, as he overcomes personal and professional battles to finish the script for Orson Welles’ iconic drama.

The Souvenir breakout Tom Burke stars as Welles with Gary Oldman in the titular role of Mank.

The cast also includes Amanda Seyfried as Marion Davies, Charles Dance as William Randolph Hearst, Tom Pelphrey as Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and Lily Collins as Mank’s secretary Rita Alexander.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, the director’s long-time composers and Oscar winners for The Social Network, provide the film’s original score. To keep with the film’s period setting, Reznor and Ross relied only on instruments that would be available at the time, which means fans should not expect a synth-oriented score.

The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin recently commented, “Mank is so freaking good. It’s breathtaking, even by David Fincher standards”.
