New The Man Who Killed Don Quixote poster for U.S. launch
Screen Media will launch Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote in partnership with Fathom Occasions to the U.S. this coming April, but in the meantime you can check out a brand new poster in the gallery below!
Toby (Driver), a cynical advertising manager, finds himself trapped at the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker (Pryce) who considers himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their surreal and comic adventures, Toby is forced to face the consequences of a movie he made in his childhood — a movie that changed dreams and the hopes of a tiny village. Can Toby regain his humanity and make amends? Can Don Quixote endure death and his insanity? Or will love conquer all?
Gilliam penned the screenplay with Tony Grisoni, with whom he listened on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Tideland and The Brothers Grimm. Gerardo Herrero, Ukbar Filmes in association with Alacran Pictures, Amy Gilliam, Tornasol Films, Kinology, Recorded Picture Company, Entre Chien et Loup and Mariela Besuievsky, are producing with TVE, Movistar Eurimages + and Wallimage’s involvement.
