Wild at Heart
David Lynch’s most Oz-inspired film, a road movie about lovers Lula and Sailor, who leave a trail of sex and carnage in their wake.
Sailor (Nicolas Cage) and Lula (Laura Dern) are passionately in love. The only issue is that Lula’s mother is set on sending a string of various gangsters and weirdos to take out Sailor and keep the lovers apart. The David Lynch film with the most The Wizard of Oz DNA, Wild at Heart is a hyper-violent, dizzying romantic love story and an essential big screen watch.
Contains scenes of strong violence and sexual threat, flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
