Max has an active imagination, who will throw a fit if others don't go along with what he wants. Following an incident with his sister Claire and her friends, Max throws a tantrum when his mother pays more attention to her boyfriend than to him - runs away from home. Wearing his wolf costume at the time, Max not only runs away physically, but runs toward a world in his imagination. This world, an ocean away, is inhabited by large wild beasts, including Carol who has the same temperament as Max. Instead of eating Max like they normally would with creatures of his type, the wild things befriend Max after he proclaims himself a king who can magically solve all their problems

However, as the city inside the warehouse grows, Caden's own life - wives, extra marital relationships, children, his therapist and even the actor he has hired to play himself within the play - veers wildly off the tracks. And a mysterious condition is systematically shutting down each of his autonomic functions, one by one. As he pushes the limits of his relationships, both personally and professionally, a change in creative direction arrives in a celebrated actress who may offer Caden the break he needs"--Container

Presented by David Fincher (The Social Network) and Spike Jonze (Where The Wild Things Are), The Fall is a "breathtakingly imaginative" (Empire Magazine) treat from visionary filmmaker Tarsem (Immortals), destined to linger long in the imagination, giving wings to the grand spirit of adventure and charm of storytelling. In 1920s Los Angeles, whilst rehabilitating in hospital after a fall, 5 year-old Alexandria (Catinca Untaru) strikes up an unlikely friendship with Hollywood stuntman Roy (Lee Pace, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn). Recovering from a near fatal accident and a personal betrayal, Roy is a broken man and recognises in Alexandria's eyes the innocence and glistening reflection of unconditional optimism. He begins to tell of a magical, mythological land ruled by Governor Odious and the 5 extraordinary heroes charged to defeat him - an enthralling story of colour, texture and immense riches unravels - and it is only when the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur that Alexandria realises there is much more at stake than meets the eye.--Kanopy
