Here is how The IMDb describes this movie:

In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastic story of five mythical heroes.

Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality blurs as the tale advances.

My Thoughts

I found out about this movie thanks to seeing some people commenting about it on the internet, otherwise I probably would have never known about this movie.

The comments all said that this was an underappreciated & less known masterpiece, et cetera, and so I watched a trailer for it.

Lee Pace is in the movie, I was impressed with his performances in the previous two movies that I saw him in, and the TV show Foundation.

So I decided to watch this movie to see if it is really as good as the comments said.

I like finding hidden gems, and so I hoped that this would be one.

This movie is visually impressive & artistic & creative, it is like an artist bringing a labor of love to the screen, it is like a somewhat surreal artistic story told by an adult to a child.

This movie had some beautiful, unique, and varied filming locations; it is worth watching this movie just on that alone, and I forgot to mention that it had some good classical music.

You do not usually see movies like this now-a-days, it is what I used to expect when someone talked about watching a movie at a movie theater.

It reminded me of the movie The Cell (2006) combined with the movie The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.

This movie almost made me cry, I teared up, I started huffing & puffing a little like I was going to cry while trying to hold it in, and I managed to hold it in; but I almost dropped a tear, and my eyes got wet.

Catinca Untaru & Lee Pace were standouts in this movie, I definitely recommend watching this movie at least once, for the unique visuals & experience & filming locations et cetera.

The end,
