Stanley Kubrick | USA/UK/Ireland | 1975 | 184m | PG | No intermission

Barry LyndonClassic Re-Release

Kubrick’s epic adaptation of the Thackeray novel tells the story of an Irish rogue (Ryan O’Neal) who wins the heart of a rich widow and assumes her dead husband's aristocratic position in 18th-century England. A stylish and stunning masterpiece of colour and composition inspired by painters such as Thomas Gainsborough and William Hogarth. With its meticulous historical accuracy and its astonishing visual beauty, Kubrick’s most underrated work is also probably his greatest.

"This is a masterclass in cinematography. Don't miss the chance to watch it in a cinema”, The Guardian.
