Terry Gilliam, the director of such fantasies as TIME BANDITS, BRAZIL, and THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN, tells a very different kind of story in TIDELAND. Based on the novel by Mitch Cullin and cowritten by Gilliam and Tony Grisoni, TIDELAND follows young Jeliza-Rose (Jodelle Ferland), the daughter of Noah (Jeff Bridges), a drug-addicted aging rock-and-roller, and Queen Gunhilda (Jennifer Tilly), a drug-addicted, mean-spirited chocoholic. After her mother overdoses, Jeliza-Rose and Noah move to his mother's home in the middle of nowhere, an abandoned wreck of a house. As Noah gets lost in one of his "vacations"--his drug trips, for which his daughter prepares the speedball--Jeliza-Rose becomes friends with the emotionally and physically challenged epileptic Dickens (Brendan Fletcher), the brother of Dell (Janet McTeer), a witchlike woman who is deathly afraid of bees, has a penchant for taxidermy, and continually terrifies Jeliza-Rose. Jeliza-Rose also falls farther into her own fantastical world, particularly with her doll heads Mustique, Sateen Lips, Glitter Gal, and Baby Blonde--one of which falls down a dark and narrow rabbit hole--and a mysterious talking squirrel that is trying to tell her something important. Part PSYCHO, part ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, Gilliam's challenging film also includes an eclectic soundtrack, featuring original songs such as "Wash Me in the Blood of Jesus" and "Van Gogh in Hollywood" (the latter performed by Bridges as the leader of a heavy metal band), as well as an eerie set that echoes Andrew Wyeth's famous painting "Christina's World."
