Before Night Falls
Cert: 15 Year: 2000 Length: 133 mins
Javier Bardem's heart-breaking central performance prompted his Oscar nomination for Best Actor in this biopic of poet, Reinaldo Arenas. Having fought for the revolution, Arenas finds himself imprisoned and an outcast in Castro's homophobic Cuba. Schnabel employs a lyrical narration of Arenas's texts with a subtlety and intensity that has lead to the poet's books selling by the thousand in the US.
Venice Film Festival 2000, Grand Jury Prize.
