DOCTOR ZHIVAGO

To mark the 45th anniversary of David Lean's romantic epic Doctor Zhivago, we welcome Warner Home Video's magnificent state-of-the-art hi-def restoration, shown theatrically for the first time at Tribeca and available on Blu-ray disc May 4. Adapted from Boris Pasternak's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, the film captured five Academy five more.

Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger, Alec Guinness, Ralph Richardson, and Tom Courtenay star in the film—filled with passion, drama, and personal and political strife set against the enormous backdrop of the Russian Revolution. The film follows Zhivago as he marries, raises a family, and then meets his life's love in the midst of war and revolution. Much like his beloved country, Zhivago's spirit becomes battered by war's devastation as he struggles to maintain his individualism despite overwhelming odds. The ultimate power of Doctor Zhivago emanates from Lean's rendering of the fragile yet indomitable human spirit and its capacity for love. Maurice Jarre's haunting score and Freddie Young's rich photography help achieve the lavish production values, rarely surpassed since.
