Over the past six decades fabled Italian film star Claudia Cardinale has worked with master directors such as Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, Sergio Leone and Werner Herzog, featuring in some of the most acclaimed European films of the 1960s and 1970s.

In Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard (1963), Cardinale stars as Angelica Sedara, the beautiful fiancée of the nephew of the Prince of Salina, laying the cornerstones of her career with an opulent classic that recreates the tumultuous years of Italy's Risorgimento—when the aristocracy lost its grip and the middle classes rose and formed a unified, democratic Italy.

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1963, this 4K restoration of Luchino Visconti’s revered The Leopard is an epic on the grandest possible scale.
