Cross young love with artistic talent and you’ll get extra helpings of suffering and angst. So it is for painter Salvador Dalí (Pattinson) and poet-playwright Federico García Lorca (Beltran) when the youths meet at college in Madrid in 1922. Though they’re instantly attracted, cultural taboos initially keep them apart in this muddled romantic drama. Pattinson offers, appropriately, a surrealistic turn as Dalí, flitting dreamily from one emotional extreme to the next.
