Fantastic cinema from the lunettes

The American film Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, Benjamin Bratt and Michael Stuhlbarg will be shown at Yara, Chaplin and Infanta cinemas until next April 16. The fantastic film, released last year, tells the story of Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a car accident that leaves his hands badly wounded.

When traditional medicine fails, it is forced to seek hope and a cure in an isolated community in Nepal called Kamar-Tajdon where it discovers not only a recovery center but also the front line of a battle against dark and hidden pawn forces committed to the destruction of our reality.

In a short time, Strange, armed with his newly acquired magical powers, is forced to choose between returning to his old life of wealth and prestige and giving up on everything to defend the world as the most powerful magician on the planet.
