Don’t miss this opportunity to see Patrice Chéreau’s biggest international hit, screening uncut—and in a new 4K digital restoration—for the first time in the US. Chéreau’s adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s novel combines an over-the-top operatic sensibility with a gory realism to create a ravishing film full of life and energy. Isabelle Adjani is the sexually voracious Margot trapped in a passionless marriage with Daniel Auteuil while Virna Lisi shines as the Queen Mother plotting the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre—a performance that won her the Best Actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival. This 20th anniversary restoration is a timely tribute to one of France’s greatest and most unheralded filmmakers, who tragically died last October. (159 mins., 4K DCP)
