Bad boys and even badder girls: what's playing this week on Sundance Channel
Nicole Kidman as photographer Diane Arbus in FUR
Last week we gave you a little taste of what’s in store for Kubrick fans this month on Sundance Channel with EYES WIDE SHUT and BARRY LYNDON. We keep your appetite whet this week with 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and another dose of Ryan O’Neal as bad boy BARRY LYNDON. Stay satisfied with Gretchen Mol, who bears is all in THE NOTORIOUS BETTIE PAGE. Then LOVE COMES LATELY (based on the short stories of Isaac Bashevis Singer) proves that you don’t have to be young to be young at heart – or have a bed-shaking sex life. And Robert Downey Jr. and Nicole Kidman take sex to a whole new – and hairy – level with FUR: AN IMAGINARY PORTRAIT OF DIANE ARBUS.
But if it’s not a romp in the metaphorical bale of hay you’re looking for, we’ve got the Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee and festival fave AMREEKA, playing right after BOBBY, the story of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, directed Emilio Estevez. Then Sir Ian McKellan plays James Whale, the director of FRANKENSTEIN in the story of his last days, GODS AND MONSTERS. Whether it’s a trick or treat you crave we’ve got you covered. See the full schedule to see what else is playing this week on Sundance Channel.
