Martin Scorsese presents: سن البراءة
This event is sold out.
Screening introduced by Martin Scorsese
Dir. Martin Scorsese. 1993, 139 mins. 35mm. With Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, Winona Ryder. For the Museum’s series شاهدها كبيرة!, celebrating the presentation of great movies on the big screen, legendary director Martin Scorsese has selected one of his favorites of his own films. Scorsese will introduce a rare theatrical screening of سن البراءة, his sumptuous cinematic rendering of Edith Wharton’s novel about the social mores of turn-of-the-century New York and one of the legendary director’s greatest accomplishments. Both a visual feast (featuring gorgeous cinematography and Oscar-winning costumes) and a profoundly moving character-driven drama of unrequited love—between Day-Lewis’s upright Newland Archer and Pfeiffer’s scandal-tinged Countess Olenska—سن البراءة is an overwhelming emotional experience, as rattling any of the director’s visions of the city’s mean streets.
