Overview

In career-defining roles, Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern star as Sailor and Lula, lovers on the run from a hitman enlisted hired by Lula’s ‘wicked witch’ mother, in David Lynch’s violent, sexy and surreal road movie.

With liberal references to The Wizard of Oz and Elvis, and an iconic role for Sailor’s treasured snakeskin jacket – which he believes symbolises his ‘individuality and belief in personal freedom’ – Wild at Heart won the Palme d’Or for best film at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival.
