Tideland (2007)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Feb 27, 2007; DVD Release Date: Feb 27, 2007; Movie Rated: R; Genre: Drama; With: Jeff Bridges and Jodelle Ferland; Distributor: THINKFilm

Near the end of Tideland, heroine Ferland tells dad Bridges: ''We'll be a happy family!'' As Bridges, by then, is not only dead but has been stuffed by a mad taxidermist, this seems arguable. Nor is that the only doubt-inducing aspect of a movie that tracks the semi-romantic bond between Ferland's prepubescent orphan and a mentally challenged adult. Still, Terry Gilliam's grim fairy tale is another fantastic(al) showcase for his visual talents.
EXTRAS include commentary and docs larded with entertaining contributions from Gilliam.
