JOIN US FOR THE BEST OF LONDON THEATER, ON SCREEN IN LANDIS CINEMA.
Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer, The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession at the Barbican Theatre in London. Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film.
Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a roadside restaurant he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. 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.
General admission seating. All National Theatre Live screenings take place downtown in Buck Hall’s Landis Cinema. Buck Hall is located at the corner of North Third and Snyder Streets.
Presented in partnership with the Lafayette College Theater Department.
