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
