Winner of 9 Oscars in 1997, Anthony Minghella’s superb romantic war drama (adapted from Michael Ondaatje’s Booker Prize-winning novel) follows a nurse (Juliette Binoche) tending to a burns victim (Ralph Fiennes) at the close of WWII as he recalls a fateful love affair. It remains an exceptional achievement, a profoundly moving study of love and loss in wartime. Also starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Colin Firth, Minghella’s film is a profoundly moving study of love and loss in wartime. Projected in 35mm glory via our 1950s projector!
