The classic tale of a man's dream, his epic journey, and one true love.

Don Quixote is a 2000 television film made by Hallmark Entertainment and distributed by TNT. It was directed by Peter Yates, and the teleplay, by John Mortimer, was adapted from Miguel de Cervantes' classic novel Don Quixote. The film was shown in three parts in Europe but in one installment in the U.S.

Contents

The film was produced by Dyson Lovell, with Robert Halmi Sr. and John Lithgow as executive producers, and cinematography by David Connell. The original music is by Richard Hartley. The film stars John Lithgow as Don Quixote de La Mancha (Quixote's real name is Alonso Quijano), and Bob Hoskins as Sancho Panza, and features Isabella Rossellini, Vanessa Williams, Lambert Wilson, Amelia Warner, Tony Haygarth, Peter Eyre, Lilo Baur, James Purefoy, and Trevor Peacock; it completed a decades-old goal of Yates' — his original intent was to cast Richard Burton in the lead role.

Of all the Hallmark adaptations of classic novels which premiered on Turner Network Television, only Don Quixote is still unavailable on a U.S. or British DVD. The film was made in English and released on VHS shortly after it was telecast in the U.S., but the only DVD ever made of the film are the dubbed-into-Spanish version distributed by Divisa Home Video (Spain), and a DVD available with English or Russian-dubbed voices, with subtitles in Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, and Russian.

Awards and nominations

The film was nominated for three Primetime Emmys, and John Lithgow was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award.
