From Mary Harron, the director of American Psycho, comes a look at the later years of the legendary surrealist artist Salvador Dali, played by Sir Ben Kingsley.
Amongst the decadence of 1970s New York, the great surrealist artist, Salvador Dali, enjoys the latter stage of his career with a lifestyle filled with luxury and extravagant parties. Surrounded by his own decadence, and his band of eccentric followers who worship his charismatic persona, he is content with avoiding a fast-approaching art show and the demands of his formidable wife, Gala.
The story is told through the eyes of James Linton, a young gallery assistant, keen to make his name in the art world. After quickly becoming enraptured by the provocative world of Dali, the façade begins to fade when he uncovers that behind the glitz and glamour lies a fragile genius, haunted by the past and unprepared for the changing tide of the world around him.
Daliland stars Sir Ben Kingsley, Barbara Sukowa, Rupert Graves, Suki Waterhouse, Andreja Pedjic, Ezra Miller, and Christopher Briney.
Daliland premieres exclusively on the Icon Film Channel from September 11th and is released in selected UK cinemas from October 13th.
