Description

Tomas (Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis -- "Gangs of New York," "My Left Foot") is a doctor and a lady's man in Czechoslovakia during the late 1960s. Although he already has a sophisticated lover, Sabina (Oscar-nominee Lina Olin -- "Chocolat," "Hollywood Homicide"), he becomes smitten with a bookish country girl named Tereza (Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche -- "The English Patient," "Chocolat"), and the two begin a relationship. Sabina eventually learns to accept this other relationship, and the two women find themselves forming a deep friendship. However, the lovers triangle find themselves caught up in the political events of the "Prague Spring" of 1968, and as the Soviet tanks roll in to crush the non-violent rebellion, their lives are forever changed. Written and directed by Oscar-nominee Philip Kaufman ("Twisted," "The Right Stuff").
