Triple-bill of movie adventures starring Heath Ledger.
In 'The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus' (2009) Christopher Plummer stars as Dr Parnassus, leader of the extraordinary Imaginarium: a travelling theatre where members of the audience are given the irresistible opportunity to go beyond reality by means of a magical mirror and explore the limitless realms of their imaginations.
Despite his amazing gift for guiding the imaginations of others, however, Parnassus harbours a dark secret: years before he made a pact with the devil in order to buy himself immortality.
When the devil appears to collect his payment - Parnassus's beautiful 16-year-old daughter Valentina (Lily Cole) - Parnassus and his troupe, now joined by the mysterious shape-shifting Tony (variously portrayed by Heath Ledger, in his last ever performance, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell), embark on a wild and surreal journey through parallel worlds to save the girl and undo the mistakes of the past.
In 'The Brothers Grimm' (2005) Will (Matt Damon) and Jake (Ledger) Grimm dazzle small towns with their imaginative folklore and elaborate illusions, but when the brothers journey into a real enchanted forest to help a village rid itself of an evil witch, they encounter many of the fantastic characters and thrilling situations found in their beloved fairy tales.
Finally, in 'The Four Feathers' (2002), Harry Feversham (Ledger), a British officer, resigns his commission on the eve of a battle in the Sudan.
He is given four white feathers by his friends and fiancée (Kate Hudson) as a symbol of cowardice.
Determined to win back his honour, Feversham exposes himself to hardship while disguised as a Sudanese man in an attempt to aid his comrades.
