"Pure Comedy Gold"Dream Scenario starring Nicolas Cage opens Friday December 1!

Opens December 2
December 2 & 3

Siblings Maisie (Lorraine Ashbourne) and Tony (Dean Williams), along with their mother (Freda Dowie), gather for their sister Eileen’s (Angela Walsh) wedding. It is a joyous occasion, but through flashbacks it becomes clear that the family was not always happy. Their father (Pete Postlethwaite) was physically abusive to his wife, and left the children emotionally traumatized. As a result, the children have grown into unhappy adults, looking for love they didn’t receive when they were young.

For all the formal technique and the theatrically controlled tableaux, the drama is vividly present and alive.


Just as you think you have its moves all doped out, a scene of such shocking beauty flashes before you that it takes your breath away.
