Venus in Fur

Friday, June 20 - Thursday, July 24, 2014

Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) stars as Thomas, a stage director auditioning a new female lead: a woman who takes a man as her slave. But when the volatile and erotic Vanda (Emmanuelle Seigner, the filmmaker’s wife) comes barreling into his Paris theater, she stuns Thomas with her commitment to the role, and the boundaries between life and art begin to crumble. Adapted from David Ives’s Broadway hit, Polanski’s 20th feature offers a devilishly funny, classically Polanskian investigation into the dynamics of sex and power.
