“Everyone’s blessed with one special thing.” In his bravura breakthrough film, acclaimed auteur Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master, Phantom Thread, Licorice Pizza) shapes the saga of doofy porn star Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg) and the ‘70s and ‘80s adult film industry into a sweeping exploration of art, commerce, ambition, corruption, values, and changing times. Boasting an epically star-studded ensemble cast, Boogie Nights is a dazzling, moving, and essential modern classic.
