About "Keyhole"
After a long absence, gangster and father Ulysses Pick (Jason Patric) arrives home tow-ing the body of a teenaged girl and a bound and gagged young man. His gang waits inside his house, having shot their way past police. There is friction in the ranks. Ulysses, however, is focused on one thing: journey-ing through the house, room by room, and reaching his wife Hyacinth (Isabella Rossellini) in her bedroom upstairs. His odyssey eventually becomes an emotional tour, as the ghostly nooks and crannies of the house reveal more about the mysterious Pick family.

"Keyhole" is directed by Guy Maddin and written by George Toles and Maddin. Executive Producer is Phyllis Laing. Producers are Jody Shapiro and Jean du Toit. The film is a Buffalo Gal Pictures and Cinema Atelier Tovar production.
