Little Dalí, Big Screen
Salvador Dalí, Federico García Lorca, and Luis Buñuel headed the avant-garde movement during a time of bourgeois conformism in the Spain of the 1920s, leaving behind a rich legacy of art and lust. In the film Little Ashes, their lives are explored from the time when a young Salvador Dalí (Twilight dreamboat Robert Pattinson) arrives at the university in Madrid. Determined to become a great artist, Dalí collaborates in Luis Buñuels films while embarking on a romance with the controversial writer Federico García Lorca. Directed by Paul Morrison, Little Ashes explores the untold story of these two characters before the Spanish Civil War and the assassination of García Lorca at the hands of Spanish Nationalists.
Little Ashes opens June 5 at Sunrise Cinemas Gateway, located at 1820 E. Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets start at $7.50. Call 954-763-7994, or visit sunrisecinemas.com for showtimes.
