Mister Lonely Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

When a [[Performer~P95684~Michael Jackson~michaeljackson]] impersonator ([[Performer~P196831~Diego Luna~diegoluna]]) living in Paris falls for a [[Performer~P50065~Marilyn Monroe~marilynmonroe]] impersonator ([[Performer~P230665~Samantha Morton~samanthamorton]]) during a performance at a retirement home, the lovestruck pair retreats to a seaside castle in the Scottish highlands populated by a commune of reclusive impersonators. Earning a living can be a difficult endeavor in the City of Lights, and in order to make ends meet, one man has turned to mimicking the King of Pop. One day, while doing the moonwalk in an old folks home, Michael meets a beautiful [[Performer~P50065~Marilyn Monroe~marilynmonroe]] look-alike. When Marilyn suggests that Michael join her in traveling to the Scottish Highlands and move into a castle populated entirely by celebrity doppelgangers, the would-be gloved one readily accepts her invitation. Shortly after arriving at the castle, Michael and Marilyn find the commune preparing for their first-ever gala -- a lavish affair featuring appearances by Abe Lincoln, [[Performer~P70872~the Three Stooges~thethreestooges]], Buckwheat, [[Performer~P70237~Shirley Temple~shirleytemple]], [[Performer~P100711~Madonna~madonna]], [[Performer~P17423~Sammy Davis Jr.~sammydavisjr]], and [[Performer~P12334~Charlie Chaplin~charleschaplin]]. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
