"Kubrick left one more brilliantly provocative tour de force as his epitaph." -Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times

After a provocative Christmas party hosted by the wealthy and unconventional Victor Ziegler, Dr. Bill Hartford and his wife Alice (played by at-the-time real-life couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman) set sail on a psychosexual journey caught between reality and illusion, jealousy and obsession. When Alice admits to have sexual fantasies about a man she met, Bill becomes hell bent on having an illicit encounter but after he sneaks into a secret society sex party, he quickly discovers he’s in way over his head. With its intimate dialogue and sweepingly vibrant scenes, Eyes Wide Shut is a befitting finale to Kubrick’s stunning cinematic legacy.
