The popular Nikos Kazantzakis novel became a hit movie, with author and director collaborating on the screenplay. Seven Oscar nods, including Best Picture, led to three wins, among them supporting actress Lila Kedrova. Bates stars as a British writer in a funk, whose inheritance-mandated visit to the storied Greek island of Crete gets a boisterous jolt once he is taken under the wing of seize-the-day local Anthony Quinn. With a memorable score by Mikis Theodorakis.
Please note: due to an issue with the print, the film will be screened from a DCP.
