Magnolia Pictures has released a trailer for an interesting-looking film titled Dalíland, which stars Sir Ben Kingsley stars as the iconic artist and eccentric genius Salvador Dalí. This looks like such a weird movie and it comes from director Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol, American Psycho, The Notorious Bettie Page, Charlie Says). It also stars Barbara Sukowa, Rupert Graves, Suki Waterhouse, Andreja Pejic, and Ezra Miller as a Young Dalí.
Here’s the synopsis:
Dalíland stars 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.
Dalíland will be released in select theaters and on VOD starting June 9th, 2023.
