Central Cinema Cinesthesia presents The Age of Innocence (1993)

Meeting Room 302
Thursday, Oct 1, 6:00pm to 8:45pm

"No filmmaker captures the grandeur and energy of New York like Martin Scorsese. With this sumptuous romance he meticulously adapted the work of another great New York artist Edith Wharton bringing to life her tragic novel set in the cloistered world of Gilded Age Manhattan. The Age of Innocence tells the story of Newland Archer whose engagement to an innocent socialite binds him to the codes and rituals of his upbringing. But when her cousin arrives in town on a wave of scandal after separating from her husband she ignites passions in Newland he never knew existed" (Criterion).
