The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Opens on July 11

Director: Philip Kaufman Run Time: 171 min. Rating: R Release Year: 1988

Starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Derek de Lint, Juliette Binoche, Lena Olin, Stellan Skarsgård

Tagline: Philip Kaufman achieves a delicate, erotic balance with his screen version of Milan Kundera’s “unfilmable” novel. Adapted by Kaufman and Jean-Claude Carrière, the film follows a womanizing surgeon (Daniel Day-Lewis) as he struggles with his free-spirited mistress (Lena Olin) and his childlike wife (Juliette Binoche). An intimate epic, The Unbearable Lightness of Being charts the frontiers of relationships with wit, emotion, and devastating honesty.

Critic Quotes: 

“What is remarkable about The Unbearable Lightness of Being, however, is not the sexual content itself, but the way Kaufman has been able to use it as an avenue for a complex story, one of nostalgia, loss, idealism and romance.” – Roger Ebert

“An excellent movie.” – El país
