Nightmare Alley (MA 15+)

Nightmare Alley movie poster

Nightmare Alley, adapted from the 1946 novel of the same name by William Linday Gresham, is Academy Award-winner Guillermo Del Toro’s take on the classic noir-thriller.

Corrupt former Carnival worker Stanton Carlisle is a nightclub entertainer and master manipulator. Using Carnival mind-reading tricks and charm, he swindles millionaires out of money. Carlisle’s act is thrown into a lurch when he meets Dr Lilith Ritter, an unsavoury psychiatrist initially intent on exposing his secrets and con-work – eventually becoming embroiled in his schemes.

Del Toro has assembled a star-studded cast including Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Willem Dafoe, Toni Collette, Richard Jenkins, Ron Perlman, Rooney Mara, Holt McCallany, Clifton Collins Jr., Tim Blake Nelson, Mary Steenburgen, and David Strathairn.
