Abstract

An adaptation of Thackeray's 19th century novel, Barry Lyndon explores amorality and passivity in the Thirty Years War. A young Irish man rises from modest means to the British aristocracy through marriage and war. Director Stanley Kubrick insists things happen to Barry Lyndon rather than Lyndon actively pursuing his life's fortunes, revealing people's limited agency in complex social and political systems.
