Barry Lyndon (1975) at the Ritz Cinema, Belper

Director: Stanley Kubrick. Starring: Ryan O’Neal, Marisa Berenson and Michael Hordern 
A special screening at Belper’s popular independent cinema of Stanley Kubrick’s detailed adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s novel about the picaresque exploits of an 18th century Irish adventurer.   
Kubrick went to extraordinary lengths to research and recreate the look of the period, taking inspiration from the era’s great visual stylists, painters such as Thomas Gainsborough and William Hogarth. Determined to film by natural or historically accurate light sources, Kubrick and his cinematographer John Alcott acquired super-fast lenses to capture scenes lit only by candles. The finished film has a pristine, painterly look and some scenes were shot locally at Chatsworth.
