Footnotes

  • Barry Lyndon is a 1975 British-American period drama film by Stanley Kubrick, based on the 1844 novel 'The Luck of Barry Lyndon' by William Makepeace Thackeray. The film recounts the early exploits and later unraveling of a fictional 18th-century Irish rogue and opportunist who marries a rich widow to climb the social ladder and assume her late husband's aristocratic position.

    The film's cinematography has been described as ground-breaking by the critics. Barry Lyndon, was nominated for seven Oscars® including three nominations for Stanley Kubrick for 'Best Picture', 'Best Director' and 'Best Adapted Screenplay'. It won four; 'Best Production Design', 'Best Costume Design', 'Best Cinematography' and 'Best Original Score' at the 1975 Academy Awards®. It also went onto win two BAFTA awards and was nominated for two Golden Globes. Although some critics took issue with the film's glacial pace and restrained emotion, like many of Kubrick's works, its reputation has strengthened over time, with many now regarding it as one of his greatest achievements, and one of the finest films ever made.
