A visually stunning movie about a beautiful little Persian girl with a wild imagination who worked in the citrus groves of California in 1913, and who is in a sanotorium/hospital after falling and breaking her arm. She meets a young suicidal actor who tells her tall tales while they are both in the hospital. The director is Tarsem, helped with producers Spike Jonze and David Fincher.
An absolutely captivating spectacle of scenery and two great lead actors who make this story of the human condition and connection resonate. Some nods to Fellini and Jordorowsky.
