The True Don Quixote
DIRECTOR: CHRIS POCHÉ
CAST: TIM BLAKE NELSON, JACOB BATALON
Q&A with Tim Blake Nelson following the screening
Four hundred years in the making, The True Don Quixote brings Cervantes’ classic tale to contemporary life, dropped into the wilds of Louisiana. Lonely, unemployed and adrift, Danny Kehoe (Tim Blake Nelson) escapes so far into the stories of medieval knights that he loses himself completely in their romantic tales. Believing he is a great knight, he straps on his cardboard armor, grabs a sword and, with his loyal squire Sancho (Jacob Batalon) by his side, embarks on a quest to find glory, slay monsters, and spread hope all across the neighborhood. What could possibly go wrong?
