Doctor Zhivago

Show Summary

Doctor Zhivago is the second film re-imagining of the famous 1957 novel by Boris Pasternak, with the first being the 1967 Hollywood adaptation. Set in Tsarist Russia at the dawn of the twentieth century, the story follows a young woman named Larissa Guishar Antipova (Keira Knightly) as she and those close to her live through the tumultuous events of their time, such as World War One and the Revolution of 1917, as well as the Civil War which followed them. Throughout the film, Antipova attracts the attention of three male suitors, among them is Victor Kamarovsky (Sam Neil) and the titular character Doctor Yuri Zhivago (Hans Matheson). Covering material already made classic, this 2002 version boasts major plot differences from both the novel and the original film version, remaining fresh and interesting to those who have already seen and enjoyed the story. Doctor Zhivago rounds itself out with an all-star cast that isn't to missed.
