Directed by former Monty Python member, Terry Gilliam, this fantastical morality tale of Dr. Parnassus (played by Christopher Plummer) and his ‘Imaginarium' dramatises the age-old choice between good and evil. An inveterate gambler, Doctor Parnassus grapples with the consequences of bets he made with the devil. Heath Ledger played the role of the mysterious young suitor to Dr. Parnassus’s daughter (played by Lily Cole) before his untimely death midway through filming.

In tribute to him, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law subsequently stepped into the role to complete the filming. Andrew Garfield co-stars in this film, which was nominated for two Academy Awards and two BAFTA Awards. Rated PG with sexual references, violence and strong language.
