The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
On April 8, 2000, aspiring artist Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell) became a victim of a violent assault when five men beat him up and left him for dead. Following the attack, Mark was left with little to no memory of his previous life due to brain damage inflicted by his attackers. In a desperate attempt to regain his memories, Hogancamp constructs a miniature World War II village called Marwen in his yard to help in his recovery. Unfortunately, Mark's demons come back to haunt him when he's asked to testify against the five men that attacked him..
The real-life doll village is actually named Marwencol, a combination of Mark, Wendy, and Colleen. The real Colleen became the character Nicol, so the "col" was dropped from the name. See more »
Mark tells Nicol dolls cannot close their eyes. Yet there are some instances later on where Nichol has her eyes closed. See more »

[Mark stumbles and falls]
It hurts like hell!
Relax, Mark, you got to embrace that pain. You've got love the pain. The pain is a rocket fuel.

One of the things that drawn me to the movie is the use of miniatures like model railroads and dioramas. The movie is a lot more, it is heavy watching the main character go through his hell. If your expecting a fun filled movie, it is sometimes but expect it to go way down and deep. The transition between the 2 worlds is flawless.
