Napoleon

Friday, December 8 until Thursday, December 14, 2023Yukon Theatre

Ridley Soctt's spectacle-filled action epic details the checkered rise and fall of the iconic French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, played by Oscar -winner Joaquin Phoenix, is being hailed as another masterpiece by the iconic British filmmaker.

Against a stunning backdrop of large-scale filmmaking the film captures Bonaparte's relentless journey to power through the prism of his addictive, volatile relationship with his one true love, Josephine, showcasing his visionary military and political tactics against some of the most dynamic practical battle sequences ever filmed.

Recommended for ages 16+ for scenes of strong violence, sexual and mature content.

As entertainment Napoleon delivers without glorifying his military record or painting the man as a hero. It's a story about power, obsession and exploitation -- which arguably is the story of history itself. - Hannah Strong, Little White Lies

This is a historical epic which is constantly on the lookout for subtle ways to undercut historical epics. - Catherine Bray, Empire Magazine
