Nymphomaniac Volume 1 + 2
At The Nickelodeon
Lars von Trier’s (ANTICHRIST, DOGVILLE, DANCER IN THE DARK and BREAKING THE WAVES) NYMPHOMANIAC: VOLUME I is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by newcomer Stacy Martin). VOLUME I also stars Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier.
NYMPHOMANIAC: VOLUME II picks up with the story of Joe’s adulthood, where her journey of self-discovery leads to darker complications. The film stars Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth and Jean-Marc Barr in addition to Gainsbourg, Skarsgård, Martin and LaBeouf.
As widely reported, the films contain graphic depictions of sexuality to a degree unprecedented in a mainstream feature film. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
Both Volumes will be co-presented by SPACE Gallery at Nickelodeon Cinemas, April 11-17. Please visit their website or call for showtimes and ticket prices.
