Editors Note
Note BARRY LYNDON is Stanley Kubrick's epic costume drama based on William Makepeace Thackeray's picaresque novel. It tells the story of a young rogue who wanders through life getting lost in various adventures, meeting his share of women and oddball characters. When Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal, trying desperately to maintain an Irish brogue) becomes jealous of Captain Quin's advances on Barry's beloved cousin, he challenges the man to a duel. Winning the duel, young Barry is forced to leave his home and his mother, and off on his adventures he goes. He meets thieves, lonely soldier brides, Prussian army leaders, and British widows, inventing new stories about himself at every turn of the road.^BARRY LYNDON is lush and magnificent, sparkling with color, every frame reminiscent of the finest European art. The blues of the Prussian army uniforms and the reds of the British contrast sharply with the majestic green land and mountains in nearly every background. Kubrick often begins a shot close in, then zooms out to reveal the beautiful natural landscape and ornate rooms surrounding the now seemingly insignificant characters. With rousing performances from O'Neal, Marisa Berenson, Hardy Kruger, and Leonard Rossiter, jaw-dropping camerawork, spectacular natural lighting, and a marvelous classical-music soundtrack painstakingly put together by Kubrick, BARRY LYNDON is a dramatic romantic epic that may be Kubrick's most beautiful film.
Plot Summary
Summary Stanley Kubrick's unique spectacle tells the picaresque tale of Redmond Barry, a rougish youth who starts his foray into the world as a likable Irish lad and ends up a rakish gambler. After a jealous Barry shoots his beloved cousin's fiancé in a duel, he is forced to flee Barryville. He embarks on a journey that leads him to the continent as a soldier--a job he finds less than pleasant. But he survives and, hardened by his stretch in the army, makes his way into the highest gambling circles of Europe, where his newly acquired ruthlessness stands him in good stead--until he soon finds himself on the edge of utter ruin.
Memorable Quotes
Quote "I have taken the ribbon from around my neck and hidden it somewhere on my person. You are free to look for it wherever you like, and I shall think very little of you if you do not find it."--Nora Brady (Gay Hamilton) to Barry Redmond (Ryan O'Neal)
