(Le notti bianche, Luchino Visconti, 1957)

Set in the Tuscan city of Livorno, the Dostoyevsky adaptation White Nights stars Italian icon Marcello Mastroianni as a loner who meets and falls for a fragile woman (Maria Schell) seemingly spurned by a past love (Jean Marais). The bittersweet tale of young love and loss is distinguished by Giuseppe Rotunno’s atmospheric black-and-white cinematography and Visconti’s rapturous direction. (101 mins., 35mm)

Please note: special event parking is available in the Ohio Union Garages.
