Los Angeles: (IANS) Robert Pattinson`s forthcoming film ‘Cosmopolis’ deals with a futuristic New York going through decline in capitalism. The actor admits that the topic is depressing, but feels there`s a positive side to the movie.
Pattinson plays tycoon Eric Packer in the film, which is slated to release in the US Aug 17, reports contactmusic.com. “The first time I saw it, I didn`t think about the greater scope of the movie, and then I heard people`s reactions about things like nihilism and things like that. I think it`s actually a really hopeful movie,” the 26-year-old told movies.ie.
“I think in a lot of ways, when I look at the world – maybe I am just a depressive – I think sometimes the world does need to be washed and cleansed, and that`s the hope of it,” he added.
