Eyes Wide Shut
- This event has passed.
In 1999 the world mourned the loss of Stanley Kubrick, arguably the greatest auteur filmmaker of the 20th century. That summer saw the release of Kubrick’s final film, Eyes Wide Shut, a psychosexual drama starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman as Bill and Alice Harford, a couple whose relationship is strained following the admission by Alice that she harboured desires outside of their marriage. Now, 20 years since its original release, the film has lost none of its subversive power and eroticism, and stands as a fitting testament to a director who never once compromised his vision. SE
