Sparky Pictures is delighted to announce the UK and Irish release date for Terry Gilliam’s long-awaited fantasy adventure, ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’, co-starring Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce.
Over 25 years in the making, the film had its world premiere at Cannes Film Festival and now UK audiences can finally experience the film in all its cinematic glory, with a special Q&A event screening for one night only, on the evening of Thursday 23rd January, ahead of the film’s general release on Friday 31st January.
‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ is the story of Toby (Adam Driver), a cynical advertising director, who finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoemaker (Jonathan Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote. Over the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth – a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?
Written and directed by Terry Gilliam, best known for his work with Monty Python, as well as his films ‘Brazil’, and ‘Time Bandits’, the film stars Adam Driver (‘BlacKkKlansman’, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’), Jonathan Pryce (‘Tomorrow Never Dies’, ‘Brazil’, ‘Game of Thrones’), Stellan Skarsgård (‘Mamma Mia!’, ‘Good Will Hunting’), Olga Kurylenko (‘Oblivion’, ‘Quantum of Solace’), Joana Ribeiro, and Jordi Mollà (‘Blow’, ‘Riddick’).
