Thackeray’s titular 18th-century Irish rogue – energetically played by a young Ryan O’Neal – shoots a love rival in a duel and flees for Dublin, but convoluted mishaps soon find him fighting for both sides in the Seven Years War. His bravery and good fortune then lead him into a gambling career alongside the shady Chevalier de Balibari (Magee). Barry later meets, seduces and marries the beautiful Lady Lyndon (Berenson) against her family’s wishes, only to fritter away her fortune along with his chances of becoming a true member of the aristocracy. After the success of 2001 and A Clockwork Orange, Stanley Kubrick’s next film was another discursive, albeit very different, work – sumptuously filmed, meticulously scripted and performed with gusto. Following initial critical indifference, it is now recognised as a genuine masterpiece.
Contains moderate violence, sex and nudity.
