Guy Maddin’s “Keyhole” Lands a U.S. Home

monterey media has acquired U.S. rights to Guy Maddin’s latest “Keyhole,” starring Jason Patric, Isabella Rossellini and Udo Kier. The black and white thriller, based on Homer’s “The Odyssey,” premiered at the recent Toronto International Film Festival. The company plans to open it theatrically in the Spring.

Here’s the plot per monterey:

A gangster and deadbeat father, Ulysses Pick (Patric), returns home after a long absence. He is toting two teenagers: a drowned girl, Denny, who has mysteriously returned to life; and a bound-and-gagged hostage, who is actually his own teenage son, Manners. Confused, Ulysses doesn’t recognize his own son, but he feels with increasing conviction he must make an indoor odyssey from the back door of his home all the way up, one room at a time, to the marriage bedroom where his wife Hyacinth (Rossellini) awaits.
