Doctor zhivago

David Lean’s Doctor Zhivago is a visually beautiful, sweeping romance about finding love during the Russian Revolution. The story, adapted from Boris Pasternak’s novel, was censored in Russia for promoting the importance of the individual over the state and the heart over the mind. Since the film could not be made in Russia, the elaborate scenes of Russian winters were filmed mostly in Spain. Omar Sharif as Yuri Zhivago and Julie Christie as Lara Antipova star in this epic tale of a love affair that lasted more than 30 years. Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger, Tom Courtenay, and Alec Guiness add supporting roles that contribute to the lasting impact of this film. It won five Academy Awards and is the eighth-highest grossing movie of all time. The haunting tune known as Lara’s Theme became the song, Somewhere My Love.
