The Age of Innocence
Location: Redstone Theater
Introduction by screenwriter Jay Cocks (The Age of Innocence, Gangs of New York, Silence)
Dir. Martin Scorsese. 1993, 139 mins. 35mm. With Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, Winona Ryder. Scorsese’s sumptuous cinematic rendering of Edith Wharton’s novel about the social mores of turn-of-the-century New York is 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—The Age of Innocence is an overwhelming emotional experience, as rattling as any of the director’s visions of the city’s mean streets.
