WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession, broadcast live from the Barbican Theatre in London. Ivo van Hove (A View From the Bridge) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti's 1943 film. Gino is a drifter, down-at-the-heels 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.
