Emphatics Film Series: The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover says
Curated by Emphatics founder Karin Legato

Peter Greenaway's 1989 dark comedy/drama is the story of Albert Spica, an ill-mannered London gangster who takes control of a French restaurant. When his disgusted wife begins a not-so-secret affair with a restaurant patron, Spica plots revenge. Lauded for its cinematography and formalist film-making techniques, the film features lavish costumes designed by Jean Paul Gaultier.

Film tickets include admission into Emphatics: Avant Garde Fashion 1963-2013. Part of #FreeAfterThree Wednesdays.

Please note: This film is rated NC-17 and contains nudity and difficult subject matter.
