Nymphomaniac Synopsis and Credits

NYMPHOMANIAC is the light and poetic story of a woman's erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-‐diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe. On a cold winter's evening Seligman, an old bachelor, finds Joe semi‐unconscious and beaten up in an alleyway. After bringing her to his flat he sees to her wounds while trying to understand how things could have gone so wrong for her. He listens intently as she over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-‐out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.

"Nymphomaniac" stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Connie Nielsen, Jamie Bell, Nicole Kidman, Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgard, and Willem Dafoe.

Directed by Lars von Trier.
Written by Lars von Trier.

Release Date: March 21, 2014

jackiechan has slowed down quite a bit in recent years, but when he was in his prime, he is known to submit his own headlines and not do things he's not capable of. Now in his twilight years, he's deferring to up-and-coming submitters.
