Letter From An Unknown Woman


Dir. Max Ophuls (1948).
Adapting a story by Stefan Zweig, Ophuls created a heartbreaking tale of unrequited love in which the narrative is as deftly circular as his constant camera maneuvers. Joan Fontaine stars as the unknown woman for whom a single night suffices for eternity.

Wednesdays-Fridays, 1:30 p.m. Starts: Nov. 2. Continues through Nov. 4, 2011
