Henry & June

Henry & June

“I’ve done the vilest things – the foulest things – but I’ve done them… superbly.”

A love triangle inspired by the two of the Twentieth Century’s most notable literary figures is explored in Philip Kaufman‘s (THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING) highly erotic cult-classic HENRY & JUNE, which was the first to earn an NC-17 rating when it was released in 1990. While traveling in Paris, author Henry Miller (Fred Ward) and his wife, June (Uma Thurman), meet Anais Nin (Maria de Medeiros), and sexual sparks fly as Nin starts an affair with the openly bisexual June. When June is forced to return to the U.S., she gives Nin her blessing to sleep with her husband. Then, when June returns to France, an unexpected, and sometimes contentious, threesome forms. With Richard E. Grant.

“Beautiful, captivating and spectacularly uninhibited.” (Washington Post)

A surge of love, an urge to help mankind overcomes her.” Beyond director Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s delightfully charming and utterly romantic (in every sense of the word) AMELIE being of… Continue Reading
