Terry Gilliam’s Orwellian science fiction fantasy stars Jonathan Pryce as Sam Lowry, an accountant of sorts, who is trying to find the woman of his dreams – literally. In this dystopian world, the bureaucratic, totalitarian system is reminiscent of 1984, albiet with a buffoonish, slapstick quality. Sam’s life is immediately and tragically changed by a computer’s typographical error. Robert De Niro, Michael Palin, Katherine Helmond, Bob Hoskins, and Ian Holm add bizarre and whimsical characters to this brilliant and controversial look at a futuristic society. (35mm presentation)
