Synopsis: David Lynch takes us back to the town of damned good cups of coffee and cherry pies in this film prequel to the television series where we actually meet Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) for the first time. Brought in to investigate the mysterious death of night shift waitress Teresa Banks, special agent Chester Desmond (Chris Isaak) and later Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) unravel the bizarre clues, mysterious disappearances, and strange happenings that lead to the last seven days of Laura Palmer’s troubled life… and ultimately the killer.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me was famously met with boos at its Cannes premiere in 1992 and a flop at the box office not long after, yet has gained a cult following in the decades since.

“At its best, it’s a dream within a dream, a nightmare in endlessly reflecting pop mirrors, a screen full of TV-movie sex and horror kitsch blowing up right in our faces.” -Los Angeles Times

“In its own singular, deeply strange way, Fire Walk With Me is David Lynch’s masterpiece.” -Village Voice
