Director Martin Scorsese, actress Winona Ryder, and editor Thelma Schoonmaker in person!
Edith Wharton’s 1925 novel about a secret passion within the social universe of Old New York struck many writers and fans as an odd departure for Martin Scorsese. When it was released in 1993, The Age of Innocence was greeted with equal amounts of admiration and puzzlement. 20 years later, this stunning film seems like one of Scorsese’s greatest – as visually expressive as it is emotionally fine-tuned, the movie is a magnificent lament for lost time. With an extraordinary cast led by Daniel Day-Lewis as Newland and Michelle Pfeiffer as Ellen. Grover Crisp and his team at Sony have now given Scorsese’s film the long-awaited restoration it deserves – this is the world premiere.
