An audacious and visually playful love story set in the world of celebrity impersonators. A Michael Jackson impersonator lives alone in Paris and performs on the streets to make ends meet. At a show in a retirement home, Michael falls for a beautiful Marilyn Monroe look-alike who suggests he move to a commune of impersonators in the Scottish Highlands. At the seaside castle, Michael discovers the commune preparing for their first-ever gala: Abe Lincoln, Little Red Riding Hood, the Three Stooges, the Queen, the Pope, Madonna, Buckwheat, Sammy Davis, Jr… as well as Marilyn's daughter Shirley Temple and her possessive husband Charlie Chaplin.
Meanwhile, in a Latin American jungle, a drunken missionary (Werner Herzog) leads some nuns on a highflying adventure… The film is stunningly shot by cinematographer and prodigy Marcel Zyskind and features extraordinary performances. Poignant and whimsical in turn, Mister Lonely shows Harmony Korine at the top of his game.
