She befriends Roy Walker, a movie stunt man with legs paralyzed after a fall. At her request, Roy tells her an elaborate story about six men of widely varied backgrounds who are on a quest to kill a corrupt provincial governor. Between chapters of the story, Roy inveigles Alexandria to scout the hospital’s pharmacy for morphine. As Roy’s fantastic tale nears its end, Death seems close at hand.
Plot: In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastic story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.

Totally Blown AWAY …..
I was absolutely blown away. I absolutely had no idea really what this movie was about and I didn’t do any research on it and met a friend to see this screening and I have to tell you THIS IS film MAKING!!! I loved every minute of it!!!! I don’t know why it hasn’t been released but this is one movie I have to have in my video library to watch and watch over again. Story telling at its ultimate highest. I was very impressed with Catinca Untaru “Alexandria”, I would love to see more of her, very talented not to mention Lee Pace, you can tell they worked very well together. I can not wait to see this movie again. I felt the ending was closure. Dan Gilroy – you need to write more often-I just can’t say enough about this film. The cinematography ….is just awesome. Please release this film, I wanna see it again.
The power of stories and our need to hear them
Tarsem’s four year labor of love about a little girl in a hospital. She was injured in a fall and is waiting to heal. As she runs about the hospital she makes the acquaintance of a stuntman, also injured in a fall. He begins to tell her a story that spins out and has unexpected repercussions for both of them.
Beautiful, one of a kind film is a magical exploration about the power of stories and the need to hear them. Shot all over the world this is a film was clearly shot on location from the pyramids to the Taj Mahal to beautiful islands in the sea (but its not a pirates tale). It is a movie that takes us places and shows us things we have never seen before, even if we have. I love how this film creates the two worlds, one of Los Angeles Once upon a time and the other in the mythical world of the tale. Its so rare that a film gets so much right.
While many people will click with the film and its tales of life and adventure, I know some people will be driven to distraction if not by the deliberate pacing then by the fantasy tale which has the feel (rightly) of being made up on the fly. Anyone who’s ever made up a story on a fly will be able to relate to having to pull a story out of the things at hand. Yes the real life stuff is logical and in order but the fantasy story is less so with real life influencing what is happening. Once it became clear how what was happening in the lives of the characters was influencing everything I sat on the edge of my seat in order to see how the next twist would happen.
This is a magical film for lovers of stories of any sort. (Though its probably a bit too dense for kids-it carries an R rating for reasons I don’t understand) I’m guessing that you will be moved.
(And I don’t think its a pretentious film, I think other than its feelings toward telling stories I don’t think there is much going on, just a good tale)
