Kubrick collaborator James B. Harris (THE KILLING, PATHS OF GLORY) combines magical realism with sumptuous visuals by Mario Tosi (CARRIE, THE STUNT MAN) and a haunting score by Richard Hazzard (XANADU) to create this bizarre and poetic love story co-starring Richard Pryor!
In this modern-day “Sleeping Beauty”, a disillusioned musician (RED SHOE DIARIES auteur Zalman King) obtains a sleazy carnival act and brings home a young girl (Tisa Farrow, ZOMBIE) who’s been asleep for many years. After reviving her, he introduces her to his phantasmagorical world. But as they grow closer, she pines for a life more complex than he can offer.
