Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer) stars in the stage production directed by Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler). Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a roadside restaurant he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart.
