Doctor Zhivago is a 1965 epic romantic drama film directed by David Lean based on the Nobel Prize winning novel by Boris Pasternak. Composer Maurice Jarre received one of Doctor Zhivago's five oscars.
The film takes place mostly against a backdrop of the pre- World War I years, World War I itself, the Russian Revolution of 1917, and the Russian Civil War, as seen through the eyes of poet/physician Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif). In the tradition of Russian novels, a multitude of characters and subplots intertwine; Zhivago is married to Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin), but carries on an affair with Lara (Julie Christie), who has been raped by ruthless politician Komarovsky (Rod Steiger). Meanwhile, Zhivago's half-brother Yevgraf ( Alec Guiness) and the mysterious, revenge seeking Strelnikoff (Tom Courteney) represent the 'good' and 'bad' elements of the Bolshevik revolution. The film possesses some kind of cinematic magic; whether it's the spectacle of a recreated Russia from the distant past, the youthful and attractive cast, or the tragic love story that seems so passionate amidst such misery, audiences still find much to love in Doctor Zhivago.
