Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer, The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession, captured live from the Barbican Theatre in London in HD. Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film – highly regarded as a classic psychological study in erotic obsession.
Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a roadside restaurant, he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna (Halina Reijin). Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart. CTC In select cinemas from July 29. More info and trailer here
“Jude Law smoulders” – Daily Telegraph (UK)
“The sex is much more explicit than in the film and the two lead actors go at it with a vengeance… Law is muscular, moody and very good.” – The Guardian
