The Name of the Rose

It’s the work of the Devil. That’s what some say when a bizarre series of deaths strike a 14th-century monastery. Others find links between the deaths and the book of Revelation. But Brother William of Baskerville thinks otherwise. He intends to find a murderer by using fact and reason – the tools of heresy. 

Best Actor British Academy Award® - winner Sean Connery is wily William in this compelling adaptation of Umberto Eco’s best-seller. Christian Slater plays Adso, aide to the sleuthing cleric and a youth on the verge of sexual and intellectual awakening. F. Murray Abraham is arrogance incarnate as the Inquisitor. Director Jean-Jacques Annaud filmed this moody mystery at an actual 12th-century monastery where hooded faces loom like gargoyles.
