Starring: Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgård, Olga Kurylenko, Joana Ribeiro, Óscar Jaenada, Jason Watkins
Adventure comedy directed and co-written by Terry Gilliam. The story follows Toby (Adam Driver), a cynical advertising director, who finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker (Jonathan Pryce), who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth, a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever.
Don Quixote: I was born by the special will of heaven to restore the lost age of chivalry. I am Don Quixote de La Mancha.

Toby: I want to drop some of the shots.
Toby: Because it isn’t working.

[referring to Quixote’s book]
Toby: Can I read?
Don Quixote: A peasant like you cannot read. I will sound the words and you can look at the pictures.
Toby: I don’t like this.
Don Quixote: Why does everything always have to be about you, Sancho?! “Me, me, me, me, me, me, me.”
