John Travolta arrived in Budapest yesterday to visit his daughter, Elle Bleu Travolta, who is filming her first movie in the large-scale American-Hungarian co-production entitled Get Lost.
According to 24.hu, the multiple Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning actor will also visit the filming location of Get Lost and will later also meet the directors of the National Film Institute.
The shooting of Get Lost started at the end of July. In the film, Hungary brings Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland to life:
the film will be shot in such spectacular places as the castles of Aszód and Tura, the Danube Bend, the Fisherman’s Bastion, Heroes’ Square, Gellért Hotel, the Vajdahunyad Castle, and the Operetta Theatre.
The production is supported by the National Film Institute with a subsidy of EUR 515,900 (~HUF 180 million), within the framework of which more than 60 Hungarian professionals will work in the co-production of the Hungarian Filmsquad and the American Patriot Pictures.
The protagonist of Get Lost, Alicia (Ella Bleu Travolta), is a young, insecure girl who tries to find herself again after her mother’s death, lost on a trip around Europe. Her only purpose and desire is to fulfil her mother’s last wish. Along the way, she encounters many obstacles and challenges, reaches Wonderland, the mystical Budapest, where she is faced with a big decision: she chooses Wonderland and lives the rest of her life in the tale or returns to reality and then enters the path of becoming an adult, reported Hungarian news portal Blikk.
