Doctor Zhivago

A peerless filmmaker of substance and scale, David Lean directs Boris Pasternak’s tumultuous tale of Russia divided by war and hearts torn by love. 

Epic images abound: revolution in the streets, an infantry charge into no-man’s-land, the train ride to the Urals, an icebound dacha. Omar Sharif plays the title role, Julie Christie is his haunting, long-time love Lara and both are caught up in the tidal wave of history. Hauntingly scored by Maurice Jarre (who earned one of the film’s five Academy Awards®) and full of indelible performances, Doctor Zhivago is a moviemaking wonder.
