Aside from the Parnassus movie, other films like Old Dogs, The Tooth Fairy and Legion are also showing this week... but I don't want to recommend them. Hehe!
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is Heath Ledger's last film before he suddenly passed away, I believe. Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell took turns finishing his role in the movie.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Starring: Christopher Plummer, Heath Ledger, Lily Cole, Andrew Garfield
Synopsis: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present day. It tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary 'Imaginarium', a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. Long ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr Nick, in which he won immortality. Many centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his first-born reached its 16th birthday he or she would become the property of Mr Nick.
