A gangster and deadbeat father, Ulysses Pick (Jason 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 (Isabella Rossellini) awaits.
“Idiosyncratic, cheeky and uncategorizable, the films of Guy Maddin are testaments to the singular vision of a great contemporary cinema artist, and Keyhole may be his boldest film yet.” (TIFF)
Please note: For the Friday, May 18 screening Metro Cinema president Kyle Armstrong will introduce. He has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo in Keyhole, and was working on Guy Maddin's Spiritisms/Hauntings project that was being shot simultaneously in the same location. Metro will then screen three of Armstrong's 29 "residual hauntings," shot and edited on the Hauntings set."
