Nate Poole (Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler, Iron Man 2) is a washed-up jazz musician fleeing from trigger-happy gangster Happy Shannon (Bill Murray, Lost In Translation, Get Low). While on the run, Nate stumbles across a traveling carnival, and is instantly mesmerized by the carnival's prized attraction, Lily "The Bird Woman" (Megan Fox, Transformers). But Lily is no carny fake: her wings are real. The fugitive musician falls in love with this angelic creature, and he convinces her to leave with him, to the anger of her ruthless employer Sam (Rhys Ifans, Notting Hill). The two flee across the desert, but towards...what? Their destruction? Their salvation?
Combining realism and myth, Passion Play is a portrait of humanity at its best and worst. Gritty and hard-boiled, it is also an adult fairytale that promises hope in the unlikeliest of places.
