Sunday Cinema: 'Dune'
Based on the Frank Herbert novel of the same name, this sweeping science fiction drama sees Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), the young scion of a noble house, arriving on an arid desert planet in turmoil as political parties vie for control of the world. Paul is torn between the responsibilities of his noble birth, the manipulative machinations of a religious order that sees him as a prophet, and the wisdom and strength he finds in the desert planet's native people who see him as one of their own. With a star-studded cast featuring Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, and Oscar Isaac, it's no surprise Dune was a contender for the 2021 Academy Award for Best Picture. Be sure to experience this grand epic on the big screen in the Durwood Film Vault!
