Murray, KY – This week at Paducah's Maiden Alley Cinema, Paul Giamatti tackles what could be his most challenging role yet in the film "Cold Souls." He plays an actor named, coincidentally enough, Paul Giamatti, who sees the solution to life's problems in a high-tech company that can put people's souls on ice. But there's more to "Cold Souls" than just existential comedy. When Paul's soul gets stolen, this really does become a "soul-searching" film. Maiden Alley's Larry Thomas and Todd Hatton talk about "Cold Souls."

Cold Souls Starring Oscar Nominee Paul Giamatti
A soul searching comedy.
Is your soul weighing you down? Paul Giamatti has found a solution! In the surreal comedy COLD SOULS, Paul Giamatti plays an actor named Paul Giamatti. Stumbling upon an article in The New Yorker about a high-tech company that extracts, deep-freezes and stores people's souls, Paul very well might have found the key to happiness for which he's been searching. But, complications arise when he is the unfortunate victim of "soul-trafficking." Giamatti's journey takes him all the way to Russia in hopes of retrieving his stolen soul from an ambitious but talentless soap-opera actress. Balancing a tightrope between deadpan humor & pathos, and reality & fantasy, COLD SOULS is a true soul searching comedy. Also starring David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck, The Bourne Ultimatum), Dana Korzun (Last Resort) and Emily Watson (Breaking the Waves, Hilary and Jackie).
