Winner of an astounding 9 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Score, the World War II romantic masterpiece The English Patient is now available to be screened in full with Gabriel Yared’s Oscar®-winning score performed by a full orchestra.
Set against breath-taking backdrops in North Africa and Italy, The English Patient tells the story of a badly burned pilot (Ralph Fiennes) pulled from the wreckage of his plane in the desert. Placed in the care of an army nurse (Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche) and referred to only as “the English Patient”, we are brought on his journey of an impassioned and consuming love affair with a married woman (Kristin Scott Thomas). Lives from both the past and present become intricately altered. The English Patient is an enthralling cinematic masterpiece that stirs emotions and touches the soul.
