Current Events and Opportunities at the NW Film Center

TESS
MAR 8-11 – WHITSELL AUDITORIUM
DIRECTOR: Roman Polanski

Natassja Kinski

Polanski’s sweeping version of Thomas Hardy’s classic novel “Tess of the d’Urbervilles” has undergone a glorious new digital restoration by Pathé, approved by Polanski himself. His first film after fleeing the US in 1977, Polanski undertook TESS in memory of his murdered wife Sharon Tate, who was drawn to the story. Seventeen-year-old Nastassia Kinski stars in the tragic story of a beautiful young peasant girl—“more sinned against than sinning”—who decides to flee her Normandy village to escape the clutches of her distant rich cousin.
