From the novel: Sanctuary / William Faulkner.
Originally released as a motion picture in 1933.
Summary Loosely adapted from William Faulkner's controversial novel Sanctuary, this notorious pre-Code melodrama stars Miriam Hopkins as Temple Drake, the coquettish granddaughter of a respected small-town judge. When a boozehound date strands her at a bootleggers hideout, Temple is subjected to an act of nightmarish sexual violence and plunged into a criminal underworld that threatens to swallow her up completely.
Note Special edition features: Casting a shadow (new program featuring a conversation between cinematographer John Bailey and Matt Severson, director of the Margaret Herrick Library at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, about the film's visual style, as well as archival materials relating to its production); Pre-code powerhouse (new program featuring critic Imogen Sara Smith on the complexity of the film and its central performance by Miriam Hopkins); Honest expression (new interview with critic Mick LaSalle about the film, censorship, and the Production Code); plus: an essay by critic Geoffrey O'Brien.
