Henry & June

A searing erotic drama – the first film rated NC-17 by the MPAA – from The Unbearable Lightness of Being director Philip Kaufman.

Philip Kaufman’s brilliant film explores the erotic life of two individuals who became 20th Century literary giants. Upon meeting American author Henry Miller (Fred Ward) in Paris, 1931, a young writer named Anaïs Nin (Maria de Medeiros) embarks on a voyage of self-discovery, and faithfully records every experience in her diary. In their search for new truths, Anais and Henry are tantalized by Henry’s hauntingly sensual wife, June (Uma Thurman). Henry & June is an unforgettable journey into the uncharted territory of human relationships, based on the suppressed sections of Anaïs Nin’s diaries. (Universal)
