“A richly engrossing and ravishingly beautiful magnum opus.” —Variety
Winner of this year’s top prize at Cannes, Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s most ambitious film to date explores themes of charity and generosity—both monetary and in spirit. The epic Winter Sleep is set in the mountains in a mostly deserted Turkish hotel, where a rich man’s strained relationships with his ambitious, young wife and divorced sister are put to a challenging test. As in all Ceylan films, subplots reveal the social and political restraints in Turkey, played out in the severity of the frugal landlord to his fellow townspeople. Adopt Films opens the film theatrically in December. 2014, DCP, in Turkish with English subtitles, 196 minutes.
