Called "the most whispered about picture in the world" at its release, ECSTASY shocked moviegoers with its erotic depiction of sex, particularly scenes of a young Hedy Lamarr swimming naked and its images of this unknown beauty at the height of passion. The European film, made at a time when U.S. films were restricted by the censorship code, propelled Lamarr into Hollywood stardom and became an internationally known classic hailed for its sophisticated approach to sexuality and ingenious camera work that would inspire later filmmakers. Lamarr stars as Eva, a young woman who marries an older man and is rejected on her wedding night. Frustrated, she runs away and meets a younger man who responds to her unfulfilled yearnings. They embark on a passionate affair with dreams of happiness, but soon are tangled in a web of tragic repercussions. A lyrical, sensual exploration of one woman's journey of sexual discovery, ECSTASY maintains a special place in movie history.
