IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Storyline

Sixty year old Max is having something of a middle-age crisis. His marriage seems to go nowhere as the passion, tenderness and happiness vanished when their daughter moved out. On top of that he owns an antique hardware store which is close to bankruptcy. While driving home Max is involved in a traffic accident which gives him amnesia. Confused, lost and in a disordered state, he wanders into a camp full of Latin American farm workers. There he finds a new meaning of life, happiness and a sense of belonging. However, as his memory slowly returns it's inevitable that he must confront his past. Written by Mattias Pettersson <seaman@sbbs.se>

Trivia

The jail scene was filmed in the old Denton County jail facility located on the top floor of the Denton County office building next door to Denton City Hall in Denton, Texas. The scene was actually filmed in the late evening. The "daylight" coming through the windows was produced by covering the outside of the windows with large pieces of white fabric and then shining bright spotlights on them. See more »

Unique, thought provoking, solid all the way home.
2 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unique storyline, with a possible nod to Lost Horizon, as a man going through a crisis gets amnesia, wanders into a village / camp of Mexican migrant workers and starts anew. As always Hector Elizondo steals every scene he's in and film provides another reason to love Beverly Garland. George C.brings along his Oscar winning ways and every performance here brims with sincere honesty. What a shame that this film is lingering in the vaults and not released on video or DVD. Nice location work in Texas brings a strong sense of reality to the storyline and the hard-line situations of the characters. Film grabs the viewer from start to finish and I didn't want the film to end.
