Ill-fated lovers Sailor and Lula (Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern) hit the road to escape a hit man and end up in an absurdly nightmarish landscape in David Lynch’s dark romantic fairy tale that earned the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1990. A violent, erotic, and comedic take on the road movie, this high-octane adventure features an incredible cast, distinctly Lynchian iconography, and (as always) a score by the legendary Angelo Badalamenti. Based on the outrageously enjoyable novel by Barry Gifford.
