SCREENING

The Age of Innocence

Saturday, Aug 14 at 2:30 PM

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Martin Scorsese. USA, 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 by Michael Ballhaus and Oscar-winning costumes by Gabriella Pescucci) and a profoundly moving 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 experience despite its characters keeping their emotions so tightly coiled, as rattling as any of the director’s visions of the city’s mean streets.
