Directed by John Schlesinger • 1965 • United Kingdom
Starring Julie Christie, Dirk Bogarde, Laurence Harvey
Julie Christie won a best actress Oscar for her star-making performance as a restless model ascending the social ladder of swinging-sixties London as she bounces between affairs with two men: Dirk Bogarde’s earnest television reporter and Laurence Harvey’s cynical advertising executive. By turns seductively stylish and coolly satiric, director John Schlesinger’s international breakthrough—which also garnered Oscars for best screenplay and costume design—is a cutting look beneath the glamorous veneer of the jet-setting mod scene.
