Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol, American Psycho), Dalíland stars Sir Ben Kingsley as the titular Salvador Dalí, one of the most world-renowned artists of the 20th century and focuses on the later years of the strange and fascinating marriage between Dalí and his wife, Gala (Barbara Sukowa), as their seemingly unshakable bond begins to stress and fracture. Set in New York and Spain in 1974, the film is told through the eyes of James (Christopher Briney), a young assistant keen to make his name in the art world, who helps the eccentric and mercurial Dalí prepare for a big gallery show.
“Entertaining and genuinely eye-opening.”—Hollywood Reporter
“The power of Kingsley’s performance is more than a matter of his own precise and expansive artistry; it’s a matter of a shrewd script, by John Walsh, and of Harron’s fervent attention to its essence.”—New Yorker
