|Description||A landmark movie in the film noir tradition, Roman Polanski’s Chinatown stands as a true screen classic.
Jack Nicholson is private eye Jake Gittes, living off the murky moral climate of sunbaked, pre-war Southern California. Hired by a beautiful socialite (Faye Dunaway) to investigate her husband’s extra-martial affair, Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadly deceits, uncovering a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together for one, unforgettable night in … Chinatown.
Co-starring film legend John Huston and featuring an Acamedy Award winning script by Robert Towne, Chinatown captures a lost era in a masterfully woven movie that remains a timeless gem.
