Overview: Edward Bloom – ein Held, ein Abenteurer, ein Genie – sein eigener Mythos. Doch nie ein richtiger Vater. Jetzt liegt er im Sterben, und sein Sohn Will unternimmt einen letzten Versuch, sich mit ihm zu versöhnen und endlich herauszufinden, wer Edward Bloom wirklich ist. Denn zeitlebens hat der nur fantastische Lügengeschichten über sich erzählt. So hätte er als junger Mann gemeinsam mit einem Riesen seine Heimatstadt verlassen, in einem magischen Wald gegen mordlüsterne Fabelwesen gekämpft, mit einem Werwolf im Zirkus gelebt, seine Ehefrau mit 10.000 Narzissen betört, den Zweiten Weltkrieg quasi im Alleingang gewonnen, eine komplette Nacht auf dem Grund eines Sees verbracht und noch viele andere unglaubliche Wunderdinge erlebt. Will rekapituliert all diese bizarren Geschichten, will Spuren von Realität in den Lügenkonstrukten entdecken – doch Edward Blooms „Wirklichkeit” ist eine andere ...

Ein bildgewaltiger, spannender, komischer und zugleich herzzerreißender Film über die Macht der Träume, der Liebe und der Fantasie von Meisterregisseur Tim Burton (Edward mit den Scherenhänden). Mit Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge), Billy Crudup (Almost Famous - Fast berühmt), Albert Finney (Erin Brockovich), der zweifachen Oscar®-Preisträgerin Jessica Lange (Tootsie), Helena Bonham Carter (Fight Club), Danny DeVito (Schnappt Shorty), Steve Buscemi (Armageddon) und der aufregenden Newcomerin Alison Lohman (Tricks).
