An Irish rogue (Ryan O’Neal) wins the heart of a rich widow and assumes her dead husband's aristocratic position in 18th-century England in Stanley Kubrick’s sumptuous version of William Makepeace Thackeray's novel. Cynical, ironic, and suffused with seductive natural lighting, Barry Lyndon is a complex character piece of a hapless man doomed by Georgian society.

"As leisurely as it is painterly, this is a masterclass in cinematography - famously, Kubrick used nothing but natural light in all but a few scenes. Don't miss the chance to watch it in a cinema."
- The Observer
"Every frame of every battle scene or courtly interlude is exhaustively and exquisitely detailed. "
- The Independent
"It is perhaps one of the most revolutionary examples of art-house auteur cinema before or since. "
