Posthumous is a 2014 American-German film directed by Lulu Wang and starring Brit Marling and Jack Huston.[1] It is Wang's directorial debut.[2]


Frustrated with his lack of success, artist Liam Price (Jack Huston) destroys his work in front of a Berlin gallery. However, when he passes out drunk, a homeless man steals his belongings. The man is found dead with Liam's drawings and everyone believes that he is Liam and has killed himself. When Liam realizes his art is worth more after his death, he devises an elaborate plan to make money off of his supposed demise. Meanwhile, an American journalist (Brit Marling) decides to write a story on Liam's life, which puts his ruse in jeopardy.
