Screen goddess Louise Brooks is electric in this newly restored silent classic, a tale of decadence and debauchery.

This sensational silent film follows the rise and fall of showgirl Lulu (Brooks), who goes from a decadent Weimar-era Berlin to a lurid London. When we first meet Lulu she’s the mistress of a middle-aged businessman, who tries to break off their affair in order to marry a respectable socialite, only to be caught red-handed by his bride-to-be. Lulu’s wild nature leads her into affairs with male and female suitors, leaving chaos and heartbreak in her wake.

Few actors have such an electrifying screen presence as the 22-year-old Louise Brooks, whose powerful yet naturalistic performance in Pandora’s Box went underappreciated for decades – something we aim to rectify here with this gorgeous new restoration.
