Director Series: David Lynch
Wild At Heart
David Lynch’s Palme d’Or-winning road thriller marks his only collaboration with Nic Cage, a pairing that made WILD AT HEART an obvious choice for our first-ever Late Show on our opening weekend in August 2018. We’re thrilled to be bringing it back as the opening salvo in our David Lynch director series, screening Thursday 6/8 in an optional bill with the new documentary LYNCH/OZ.
After serving prison time for a self-defense killing, Sailor Ripley (Nicolas Cage) reunites with girlfriend Lula Fortune (Laura Dern). Lula’s mother, Marietta (Diane Ladd), desperate to keep them apart, hires a hit man to kill Sailor. But he finds a whole new set of troubles when he and Bobby Peru (Willem Dafoe), an old buddy who’s also out to get Sailor, try to rob a store. When Sailor lands in jail yet again, the young lovers appear further than ever from the shared life they covet.
“Joltingly violent, wickedly funny and rivetingly erotic.” – Variety
