BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA
1992, Sony Repertory, 128 min, USA, Dir: Francis Ford Coppola

Gary Oldman turns in an iconic performance as the legendary Count Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of Bram Stoker's horror classic, which tells the vampire's story as a love triangle involving the count, young lawyer Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) and Harker's fiancée, Mina (Winona Ryder). Anthony Hopkins co-stars as vampire hunter Van Helsing.


HAMLET (1969)
1969, Sony Repertory, 117 min, UK, Dir: Tony Richardson

Shakespeare’s classic tragedy gets the Tony Richardson treatment (brought to the screen after a successful stage run of Richardson’s own production in London), and stars Nicol Williamson in the titular role, with Anthony Hopkins as King Claudius and Marianne Faithfull as Ophelia.


THE REMAINS OF THE DAY
1993, Sony Repertory, 134 min, UK, Dir: James Ivory

Anthony Hopkins is inimitable in his Oscar-nominated performance as James Stevens, the resolutely faithful head butler at a country estate in post-World War II Britain. When rule-bucking housekeeper Miss Kenton (an excellent Emma Thompson, also Oscar-nominated) arrives as the new staff member, Stevens’ world is quietly but irrevocably upended by her professions of love for him - and by the suspicions he stifles that his employer may have had ties to the Nazi party. Nominated for an additional six Oscars, including Best Picture, Director and Adapted Screenplay. Based on the Man Booker Prize-winning novel by Kazuo Ishiguro.
