David Lean’s Oscar winning epic love story is based on the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Boris Pasternak. Doctor Zhivago covers the years preceding, during and following the Russian Bolshevik Revolution, as seen through the eyes of charismatic poet and doctor Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif). An orphan, Zhivago is caught in a love triangle, married to aristocratic Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin), but later falling in love with the reactionary Lara (Julie Christie). Lara is a nurse who has been raped by ruthless politician Komarovsky (Rod Steiger), and has been a former lover of revolutionary Pasha (Tom Courtenay). The story is narrated by Zhivago’s half brother Yevgraf (Alec Guinness), who has made his career in the Soviet Army.
