If you like books, DDL & Michelle Pfeiffer, then you're in for a treat: The Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and film critic Jay Cocks joins us on June 25 for a screening & discussion of THE AGE OF INNOCENCE in 4K digital restoration. 📚🎞

On the 25th anniversary of the film's release, Jay Cocks revisits his celebrated adaptation of Edith Wharton's classic novel, as well as his collaborations with director Martin Scorsese on such films as The Last Temptation of Christ, Gangs of New York, and Silence Movie.

Based on Edith Wharton’s novel, THE AGE OF INNOCENCE chronicles a passionate almost-love affair set in the censorious, unforgiving and hypocritical background of the New York upper crust in the late 19th century. Newland Archer (Daniel Day-Lewis) is an idealistic young lawyer engaged to the naïve May Welland (Winona Ryder). When May's estranged cousin Countess Ellen Olenska (Michelle Pfeiffer) returns to the city, she is ostracized by the social set due to her «scandalous» divorce from a Polish count. Seeking to help his fiancée's family by integrating Ellen into the right circles, Newland finds himself increasingly drawn to the worldly countess. Torn between his desires and his equally powerful commitment to social convention, Newland struggles with the possibility of abandoning his place in society for Ellen's love.
