Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer, The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession, to be broadcast live and recorded in 2017 from the Barbican Theatre in London. Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a roadside restaurant he encounters a husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart. Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film. The live broadcast screens at the Bethesda Row Cinema only, on Thursday, May 11 at 2:00pm. All subsequent screenings will be a recording of that performance.
