Being led to embark on an emotional journey that questions their existence can powerfully change people’s outlook on life.

Those movies include director Panos Cosmatos’ action thriller, ‘Mandy,’ and helmer Qasim Basir’s romance drama, ‘A Boy. A Girl. A Dream: Love on Election Night.’

‘Mandy,’ which was written by Cosmatos and Aaron Stewart-Ahn, stars Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Bill Duke, Richard Brake, Ned Dennehy, Olwen Fouere and Hayley Saywell. The thriller, which is set in the Pacific Northwest in 1983, focuses on outsiders Red Miller (Cage) and Mandy Bloom (Riseborough). The duo leads a loving and peaceful existence. But their reality chances when their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand. Red is catapulted and brought into a journey that’s filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.
