Directed by Alain Resnais | 1977

With Dirk Bogarde, Ellen Burstyn, John Gielgud, David Warner, Elaine Stritch

"The superb performances and Miklos Rozsa's sumptuous Hollywood-style score give the film's conceit a moving monumentality and depth, and Resnais' insights into the fiction-making process are mesmerizing and beautiful."
—The Chicago Reader

Arthouse titan Resnais’ first film in English was this mesmerizing inquiry into memory and reality. A dying writer (Gielgud) hallucinates scenes from a poison-pen last novel, its characters based on his family (including Burstyn). On the surface a sparkling comedy, Providence is transformed by Resnais into a haunting journey into the unconscious, with surreal slips into dream logic, characters whose identities morph and merge, and a swooning Miklós Rózsa score.
