HENRY AND JUNE 35mm dir Philip Kaufman, 1990 presented by Lost Reels at The Prince Charles Cinema (21 FEB 18:00).

A rare screening of HENRY AND JUNE, Philip Kaufman’s audacious and provocative adaptation of Anaïs Nin’s diaries, recounting her tempestuous relationships with American novelist Henry Miller and his wife June in a bohemian 1931 Paris.

Driven more by mood than story and imbued with an evocative sense of time and place, it’s one of the most sensuous and beautifully photographed films ever made. Maria de Medeiros is riveting as the sexually liberated Anaïs and Fred Ward gives a career best performance as the gruff rakish Miller. Uma Thurman is mysterious and seductive as June and Richard E. Grant is perfect as the earnest Hugo.

Upon initial release the film’s sexual content earned it notoriety in the US, causing it to be the film ever to be given the NC-17 adults-only rating – the kiss of death at the domestic box office. Still largely unavailable on either side of the Atlantic, Lost Reels is proud to present a special performance of this exquisite and intoxicating film from an original 35mm print on the date of Anaïs Nin’s birthday.

Special thanks to María de Medeiros for her support of this screening.
