Anthony Richmond, the talented cinematographer behind Don’t Look Now and The Man Who Fell to Earth, directs Déjà Vu, a supernatural thriller starring Jaclyn Smith (TV’s Charlie’s Angels) and Nigel Terry (Excalibur).
Based on the Trevor Meldal-Johnsen novel Always, Déjà Vu features Jaclyn Smith and Nigel Terry in the dual roles of Maggie / Brooke and Greg / Michael. While attending a screening of a documentary showcasing the life and career of legendary ballet star Brooke Ashley, engaged couple Maggie and Greg are struck by the strong resemblance Maggie bears to the late dancer. And Greg comes to realize he shares a bond with deceased choreographer, Michael Richardson, who was romantically involved with Brooke. Is there a connection to these past lives? If so, will the truth behind Brooke’s tragic death prove fatal for them?
Written for the screen by Ezra D. Rappaport & Anthony Richmond and Arnold Schmidt from an adaptation by Joane A. Gil, Déjà Vu features Shelley Winters (The Night of the Hunter), Claire Bloom (The Haunting), Richard Kay (Three Sisters) and Frank Gatliff (The Ipcress File). Renowned composer Pino Donaggio (Dressed to Kill, Don’t Look Now) brings a lush, haunting score to the proceedings.
