1996 Best Picture winner "The English Patient" returns
While most of the local multiplexes are filling their screens with the various summer blockbusters, horror films and romantic comedies, Carmike’s downtown Majestic 12 has been doing their bit to bring back some recent classics to the big screen.
Case in point: This coming Tuesday you can treat yourself to a big bucket of popcorn and lose yourself in the majestic story of “The English Patient.”
The 1996 film, which stars Ralph Fiennes, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe and Kristin Scott Thomas, tells the story of a young nurse at the close of WWII who tends to a badly burned plane crash victim. His past is shown in flashbacks, revealing an involvement in a fateful love affair.
The film took home nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for Anthony Minghella and Best Supporting Actress for Juliette Binoche.
