One of the milestones in the modern horror genre, Rosemary’s Baby will grace the Festival screen with a digitally restored copy, celebrating its 50th anniversary. Adapted from Ira Levin’s bestseller of the same name, the film depicts the nightmare Rosemary finds herself in at the hands of her neighbors whom she suspects are members of a satanic cult. Unable to convince anyone around her, Rosemary starts to suspect that her husband Guy is in cahoots with them. What’s more frightening is that she thinks this cult is after her unborn baby. One of the most celebrated and beloved films of Roman Polanski, Rosemary’s Baby, chilling even with its title, is a timeless masterpiece in which the director perfectly treats his usual themes of paranoia and psychological violence.
This film contains scenes of sexuality/violence that might disturb some viewers.
