Salvador Dali’s life story headed to the big screen this fall in the United Kingdom…
Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment has acquired the UK distribution rights to the Ben Kingsley and Ezra Miller film Dalíland, about the late Spanish surrealist artist renowned for his technical skill, precise draftsmanship, and the striking and bizarre images in his work.
Dalíland will debut on September 4, with a theatrical release scheduled for October 6 and home entertainment on November 6.
Set in 1973, Dalíland follows a young gallery assistant who goes on a wild adventure behind the scenes as he helps the aging genius, Dalí, prepare for a big show in New York.
The film stars Kingsley in the title role of Dalí. Alongside Kingsley are Barbara Sukowa and newcomer Christopher Briney in the role of James, the young art enthusiast who finds himself thrust into the center of Dalí’s remarkable and unexpected world.
The wider ensemble features Andreja Pejić, Rupert Graves, Suki Waterhouse, Mark McKenna and Ezra Miller.
Filmmaker Mary Harron directs.
