Film Screening “Reflections in a Golden Eye” (1967)

“Reflections in a Golden Eye” is a 1967 American drama film directed by John Huston, based on the 1941 novel of the same name by Carson McCullers. The film explores themes of repressed sexuality, both homosexual and heterosexual, as well as voyeurism and murder.

Set in the late 1940s at a U.S. Army post in the South, the story revolves around six central characters, including Major Weldon Penderton (Marlon Brando) and his wife Leonora (Elizabeth Taylor), Lieutenant Colonel Morris Langdon and his depressed wife Alison, their houseboy Anacleto, and Private Ellgee Williams. The plot unfolds as these characters grapple with their failures, obsessions, and darkest desires.

The film is known for its complex characters and the intense performances by its lead actors, Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor. It received mixed reviews upon release but has since been recognized for its bold narrative and the way it addresses taboo subjects for its time.

Time: 6:00-8:00 pm EST
