“A psychological study in erotic obsession…the sex is much more explicit than in the [Visconti] film, and the two lead actors go at it with a vengeance.” — Michael Billington, Guardian

“Law smolders…that manly-boyish, angel-devil aura, which makes you follow him, fixate on his every restless, prowling move.” — Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph

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. Ivo van Hove (NT Live's A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, HEDDA GABLER) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film, starring Jude Law (THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, "The Young Pope"). DCP Digital. (Description courtesy of NT Live)
