For his tenth feature, Terry Gilliam (TIME BANDITS; BRAZIL) adapted Mitch Cullin’s celebrated cult novel Tideland, a work he once described as “Alice in Wonderland meets Psycho through the eyes of Amélie.”

To escape her unhappy life in a remote part of Texas, nine-year-old Jeliza-Rose dreams up an elaborate fantasy world. But the reality of having junkie parents – played by Jeff Bridges (THE BIG LEBOWSKI) and Jennifer Tilly (BOUND) – and the influence of her eccentric neighbors begins to encroach, turning her daydreams ever darker.

A rich slice of Southern Gothic blurring whimsical fantasy with unsettling reality, TIDELAND is among Gilliam’s most personal works – indeed, with its shifts between the amusing and the macabre, expressive camerawork and striking special effects, the film is the very definition of his aesthetic and artistry.

_“Surreal, inspired cinema from Gilliam that refuses to sugar-coat the dark imagination of children.” _- Empire
