Category Cinema Screening

A film by Terry Gilliam

Decades in the making, Terry Gilliam’s (Monty Python, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) near-mythical riff on Cervantes’ fantastic tale finally makes it to the big screen.

Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as a cynical adman trapped in the delusions of an old shoemaker (played by Gilliam stalwart Jonathan Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote.

Their comedic adventures are vintage Gilliam, the eternal struggle between dreams and reality, idealism and cynicism, playing as a fitting analogy for the film’s very existence.

“After a three-decade production ordeal Gilliam has delivered a sun-baked fable of money, madness and the movie business – and done so with trademark infectious charm.” – The Guardian

M – Mature themes, violence and coarse language

English and Spanish with English subtitles
