Eyes Wide Shut

Dir. Stanley Kubrick. UK/USA, 1999. 2h 39m. Starring Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Sydney Pollack, Marie Richardson, Rade Sherbedgia, Todd Field, Vinessa Shaw, Alan Cumming.

A one-off Valentine’s Day screening of Stanley Kubrick’s daring and divisive final film, 20 years after the original release. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman deliver hypnotic performances in this bracing psychosexual journey into the dark heart of American eroticism, taboo, and exploitation.

‘A masterpiece of sustained tone, a tightrope act that pays off in rich and unexpected ways.’ ★★★★★ Nathan Rabin, The AV Club

‘A riveting, thematically probing, richly atmospheric and just occasionally troublesome work, a deeply inquisitive consideration of the extent of trust and mutual knowledge possible between a man and a woman.’ Todd McCarthy, Variety
