NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --
On April 10, 2019, North American audiences will get the first look at Terry Gilliam's long-awaited film 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 the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. The film will play in over 700 U.S. cinemas and select Canadian locations for one night on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, with exclusive bonus features.
Presented by Fathom Events and Screen Media Films, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is the story of Toby (Driver), a cynical advertising director, who finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker (Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In 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 (Monty Python, Brazil, Time Bandits), the film stars Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Jonathan Pryce (Tomorrow Never Dies, Brazil, "Game of Thrones"), Stellan Skarsgard (Mamma Mia!, Good Will Hunting), Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion, Quantum of Solace), and Jordi Molla (Blow, Riddick).
