(NR) France – 1 hr 50 min – with subtitles
1939 · d. Jean Renoir
Starring Nora Gregor, Paulette Dubost, Marcel Dalio, Roland Toutain, Jean Renoir
New 4K restoration! Chronicling the intrigues and infidelities of an upper crust clique during a weekend in the country, Jean Renoir’s tragicomedy-of-manners captures a pre-WWII Europe on the edge of a moral abyss. Inciting an uproar at its premiere and quickly banned by the government, The Rules of the Game is now widely hailed as one of the greatest films ever made.
The June 6 screening will be shown in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, taught by Paul McEwan, Ph.D. On this date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.
