Eyes Wide Shut

In 1999, Tom Cruise and then real-life wife Nicole Kidman starred as a married couple exploring the possibilities of infidelity in master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick‘s erotically-charged, mysterious, psychological drama EYES WIDE SHUT. Adapted from Arthur Schnitzler’s 1926 psychosexual novella ‘Dream Story,’ the film was famously shrouded in secrecy and took 12 years to make; sadly, tragically, Kubrick would die of a heart attack six days after delivering the final cut of the film.

Set in the upscale world of the Manhattan elite, Cruise plays Manhattan Dr. Bill Hartford, whoe wife, Alice (Kidman), admits to having sexual fantasies about a man she met. In response, Bill becomes obsessed with having a sexual encounter of his own, discovering a clandestine, underground sexual group. When he attends one of their meetings, he quickly discovers that he is in over his head. Also starring Sydney Pollack, Leelee Sobieski, Thomas Gibson.

A must-see for Kubrick acolytes.” (Empire Magazine)

“This is finally a film that is better at mood than substance, that has its strongest hold on you when it’s making the least amount of sense.” (Los Angeles Times)

“‘Eyes Wide Shut’ has gotten better with age. It was, in Nietzsche’s word, untimely; its first audiences failed to understand it, while its real contemporaries had to bide their time.” (Screen Slate)

“Of all Stanley Kubrick’s films, his swansong remains the most divisive.” (BFI.org)
