War and Peace 

When: May 17-20, 7:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $5-$15
Sergei Bondarchuk's ambitious film adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace gets another showing courtesy of the Webster Film Series. Bondarchuk spent six years making the four installments of his film adaptation and suffered two heart attacks during the process. He emerged with a truly monumental seven-hour film that employed thousands of actors (12,000 alone in the epic Battle of Borodino set piece), as well as valuable artifacts and props loaned by Russian museums, all of which give the film a sweep and verisimilitude worthy of the source material. War and Peace, Part I, is shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 17, in Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; Parts II through IV will be shown on successive nights through Monday, May 20. Tickets are $5 to $7 per film, and a $15 punch pass good for all four installments is also available.
