Perfect Clip

Garrett Wareing stars as an emotionally-troubled young man whose mother (Abbie Cornish) sends him to a clinic that offers soothing promises of perfection. There he plants "plug-and-play" characteristics directly into his body, relieving him of his twisted visions, but creating a new problem for which his body must pay the price.

The exclusive clip shows Wareing's character as he first enters the clinic, where a calm robotic voice instructs him in the first steps to achieve bodily perfection. He's handed a plastic package by a robotic arm, which features cute drawings and instructions on the back. Following the orders of the voice, the boy draws a line on his cheek.

The clip is incredibly ambiguous, but it is an intriguing peek into the ambitious sci-fi feature debut for Alcazar, a former video game developer who has been named one of Filmmaker Magazine's 25 to Watch. Soderbergh's support also bodes well for Perfect, which made its debut at the SXSW Film Festival last year and played at the Sitges and L'Etrange Film Festivals. Soderbergh executive produces the film alongside experimental music group Flying Lotus.

Courtney Eaton, Tao Okamoto, Maurice Compte, and Abbie Cornish also star in Perfect.
