Event Details

Dir: Stanley Kubrick, UK/USA, 1975, 3h 5mins
Ryan O’Neal, Marisa Berenson, Patrick Magee

 On its release in 1975, Stanley Kubrick’s three-hour epic of eighteenth-century life Barry Lyndon had a pretty mixed critical response.  Despite its obvious beauty – the word ‘painterly’ quickly became associated with it – critics found it meandering and lacking in dramatic tension.  Later critics have been much more enthusiastic, and now that Kubrick’s work is being retrospectively re-evaluated many agree that it one of his finest pictures.  It is, for example, Martin Scorsese’s favourite Kubrick movie.

3:00 pm Barry Lyndon: Part 1: By What Means Redmond Barry Acquired the Style and Title of Barry Lyndon

 In Ireland in the 1750s, Redmond Barry, an impulsive young man, becomes involved in a duel and has to leave home.  He joins the British Army and fights on both sides in the Seven Years’ War in Germany, later becoming a professional card sharp.  He seduces and then marries the wealthy Countess of Lyndon, changing his name to hers.

4:30 pm Tea and cakes

5:15  pm Barry Lyndon: Part 2:  Containing an Account of the Misfortunes and Disasters Which Befell Barry Lyndon

 In 1773, Barry and his wife settle in on their sumptuous country estate in England.  Barry falls out with his stepson.  A son is born, but Barry is openly unfaithful to his wife, and falls under the influence of his shrewd and ambitious mother.  Events move inexorably to a tragic climax, but in an epilogue the narrator reminds us that this all happened long ago in the reign of George III, and ‘they are all equal now’.

Tickets £11, Members £9. Film Society members free.
Tea, coffee and cakes available.
