Afternoon Classic Films presents a screening of Dr. Zhivago on Monday, February 4 at 1:30 pm in the Peter White Public Library Community Room.
Director David Lean brings to the screen the thrilling story and the unforgettable characters created in the novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Boris Pasternak. The life and loves of Yuri Zhivago, doctor and poet, played by Omar Sharif, are told against the great tide of the Russian Revolution. For its expanse and majesty the story is always profoundly human.
Richard Schickel of Life magazine praised the film saying, “At once generous yet austere, huge but never out of human scale, gently unfolded yet full of power, it is a work of serious genuine art.”
A five time Academy Award winner, Dr. Zhivago, also starring Julie Christie and Rod Steiger, was released in 1965, runs for 194 minutes and is shown in color.
There is no admission charge thanks to sponsorship by the Friends of the Peter White Public Library. For more information visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.
