In the distant future, the spice “melange”, a substance that is essential for interstellar travel, can only be found on one planet: the barren wasteworld known as Dune. The noble Atreides family takes possession of the world and it is there that Paul (Kyle MacLachlan) will come of age and learn of his destiny as the Kwisatz Haderach. But will the former owners of the planet, led by the evil Baron Harkonnen (Kenneth McMillan) let him get away with it? Based on one of the greatest science fiction novels of all time from writer Frank Herbert, and the film that director David Lynch turned down Return of the Jedi to helm, Dune is a psychotropic odyssey unlike anything you’ve ever seen. The film throws you head-on into a world that is complex, layered and intricate, in a way that subsequent films have rarely even attempted to match since.

Rating: Parental Guidance (PG)
