The Man Who Killed Don Quixote coming to theatres
On April 10, Fathom Events and Screen Media Films will present a nationwide, one-night only theatrical screening of Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. In the Los Angeles area, the film will be seen at 7Pm in the AMC Citywalk 18, the AMC Burbank 16, and the Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre. The event will include bonus features in addition to the film.
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is Gilliam’s famous debacle: a previous attempt to produce the film in 1998, with Johnny Depp and Jean Rochefort, fell about shortly after principle photography began (events depicted in the excellent documentary, Lost in La Mancha). The completed version stars Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgård, and Olga Kurylenko.
Adapted from Cervantes classic novel Don Quixote, the screenplay by Gilliam and Tony Grisoni tells the story of Toby (Driver), an advertising director, who becomes enmeshed in the fantasies of a shoe-maker (Pryce), who claims he is Don Quixote.
