35mm! Kubrick's final film is a bracing psychosexual journey, a riveting suspense tale and a career milestone for stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. At a Christmas party, provocative advances and innocent flirtations arouse suspicion as high-society physician Dr. William Harford (Cruise) and his sexy wife, Alice (Kidman) watch each other from a distance. Alone later, this seemingly perfect couple confront their intimate sexual fantasies — which don't include each other. Caught between reality and illusion, jealousy and obsession, William struggles with his inner urges. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. Graceful tracking shots, rich colors and startling images that make Kubrick a filmmaker for the ages are here to keep everyone's eyes wide open. Come celebrate a very Kubrick Christmas as we close out our Kubrick retrospective.
