Eyes Wide Shut
Roxy Book Club: Which is better, the book or the movie? To find out, take the month to read this month’s Roxy Book Club selection, Arthur Schnitzler's haunting novella Dream Story (Traummnoville), which inspired Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. We’ll have a discussion about the book and its adaptation after the film screening.
After Dr. Bill Hartford's (Tom Cruise) wife, Alice (Nicole Kidman), admits to having sexual fantasies about a man she met, Bill becomes obsessed with having a sexual encounter. He discovers an underground sexual group and attends one of their meetings -- and quickly discovers that he is in over his head. Based on a novel by Arthur Schniztler, and set over Christmas in a surreal and beautiful New York City, Eyes Wide Shut is Stanley Kubrick's final masterpiece.
