Instead of a sanitized glimpse behind the scenes of a major motion picture, Lost in La Mancha offers an unexpected twist: the story of a film that was never finished. In September 2000, director Terry Gilliam began shooting an adaptation of Don Quixote, a $32 million film starring Johnny Depp that was 10 years in development. Disaster strikes almost immediately: flash floods destroy sets and equipment, a lead actor (Jean Rochefort) falls seriously ill, and on the sixth day production is brought to its knees. Narrated by Jeff Bridges, the film captures all of the drama involved with the un-making of Gilliam's cinematic spectacle. Official Web Site
