(NEW YORK) — Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest comedy opens Wednesday.
The Dictator stars the British comedian as Admiral General Aladeen, the cruel leader of the fictional North African country of Wadiya.
Aladeen comes to the United States to make a speech, but he’s betrayed by one of his officials and is tortured by a U.S. agent. Stripped of his thick beard, he’s left to fend for himself with the help of a grocery store worker, played by Anna Faris.
Ben Kingsley and John C. Reilly also star in The Dictator, which is rated R.
