“Charlotte Rampling is an actress of extraordinary intelligence and sensitivity, with a rare, charismatic beauty.” - Mary Gaitskill, New York Times’ T Magazine

CHARLOTTE RAMPLING, an eight-film celebration of the legendary actress, unfolds Fridays-Sundays at 11:00am January 8-March 6 in IFC Center’s ongoing “Weekend Classics” program. Presented in conjunction with the opening of Rampling’s latest film, 45 YEARS—for which she has won Best Actress awards at the Berlin Film Festival and the European Film Awards and from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the Boston Society of Film Critics, among other accolades—the series spans some fifty years of a career that shows no signs of slowing down. A complete film schedule is below, and a related exhibition of international posters is on view in the Posteritati at IFC Center gallery on the theater’s second floor.

The program opens with GEORGY GIRL (1966), the Swinging London-era tale that brought Rampling, playing Lynn Redgrave’s glamorously haughty flat-mate, international attention. Also showcased is one of Rampling’s most provocative roles in Liliana Cavani’s controversial THE NIGHT PORTER (1974). It includes her memorable turns in Woody Allen’s Felliniesque comedy STARDUST MEMORIES (1980), playing opposite Allen, and Sidney Lumet’s THE VERDICT (1982), a legal drama in which she starred with Paul Newman. Rampling’s impressive work with French filmmakers is represented by her devastating performance in François Ozon’s soulful UNDER THE SAND (2000)—one of four films she has made with the director—and by Laurent Cantet’s English-language HEADING SOUTH (2005), with Rampling as a middle-aged sex tourist in Haiti.

Charlotte Rampling worked briefly as a model before making her film debut in 1964 with Richard Lester’s THE KNACK. Another small role followed before her work in GEORGY GIRL and her unnerving beauty launched her as an international star. She has gone on to make scores of films over the next five decades, working with acclaimed British, American, French, Italian, Spanish and Japanese directors. Her recent television work includes the American series “Dexter,” the second season of the British series “Broadchurch” and the current “London Spy.” Charlotte Rampling lives in Paris.
