Fox Searchlight Pictures has revealed the trailer for Choke, written/directed by Clark Gregg and starring Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Brad William Henke and Kelly Macdonald. The film, opening September 26, is adapted from the best-selling, critically acclaimed novel by Chuck Palahniuk (“Fight Club”).
In the film, Rockwell plays Victor Mancini, a sex-addicted med-school dropout, who keeps his increasingly deranged mother, Ida (Huston), in an expensive private medical hospital by working days as a historical reenactor at a Colonial Williamsburg theme park. At night Victor runs a scam by deliberately choking in upscale restaurants to form parasitic relationships with the wealthy patrons who “save” him. When, in a rare lucid movement, Ida reveals that she has withheld the shocking truth of his father’s identity, Victor enlists the aid of his best friend, Denny (Henke) and his mother’s beautiful attending physician, Dr. Paige Marshall (Macdonald), to solve the mystery before the truth of his possibly divine parentage is lost forever.
