Wild at Heart

Introduction by Author Barry Gifford!

Tickets and information available soon.

(1990) dir David Lynch w/Nicolas Cage, Laura Dern, Willem Dafoe [124 min]

David Lynch’s version of Barry Gifford’s cult novel is oversaturated with saccharine lust and love, rollicking in grotesquerie, and surreally influenced by The Wizard Of Oz. Sailor (Cage) has been released after serving time for a brutal murder in defense of the honor of his love, Lula (Dern). Lula’s deranged mother will not tolerate the couple and sends a detective and a hitman after Sailor as he and Lula skip his parole and head west. Bad omens begin to fall upon the couple, and bad gets worse as money runs short and Sailor is engaged by the repulsive Bobby Peru (Dafoe) to take part in a robbery.
