The Unbearable Lightness of Being

 Come re-discover Philip Kaufman's film The Unbearable Lightness of Being at the Aero Theatre!

Director Philip Kaufman’s sublime adaptation of Milan Kundera’s almost un-filmable novel, with Daniel Day-Lewis in one of his finest roles as Tomas, a free spirit Czech doctor torn between the love of vulnerable Tereza (Juliette Binoche), whom he marries, and worldly Sabina (Lena Olin), as all three are caught in the turmoil of the 1968 Soviet invasion. Jean-Claude Carriere collaborated with Kaufman on the masterfully balanced screenplay. 

There will be an introduction by Michael Pogorzelski of the Academy Film Archive and a discussion following the film with director Philip Kaufman and actress Juliette Binoche.

Screening will take place on Sunday,  November 10, at 5:00pm. 

Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
