Not all that long ago, Brian De Palma was a bankable A-list helmer, with hits like “Scarface,” “The Untouchables” and “Mission: Impossible” under his belt. But the last ten years have been a bit rough for the filmmaker: he’s only made two movies, the semi-experimental “Redacted,” which won the Golden Lion at Venice but proved divisive in the extreme with critics, and the little-seen Rachel McAdams thriller “Passion.”
The latter was five years ago, but De Palma’s been talked about in his absence from filmmaking, thanks to the patronage of younger filmmakers who grew up on his work, like Edgar Wright who frequently sings his praises, and Noah Baumbach, who made last year’s excellent documentary “De Palma” about the helmer and his work.

Gadon is also acting as an exec producer on the project. She portrays the daughter of her overbearing mother (Arquette) and enters the rich and strange world of her deceased father (played by Trujillo) — a man she never knew. Sexual identity, the occult, and the power of will versus imagination confront her on the journey. Dimitris Kitsos also stars as Octavio’s student Apostolis.
The film is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada and the Ontario Media Development Corporation. It’s represented internationally by sales agent WTFilms.
