The Agony and the Ecstasy

Join the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts for the Charlton Heston and Rex Harrison film The Agony and the Ecstasy.

“Charlton Heston stars as Renaissance artist Michelangelo, who begrudgingly paints  the Sistine Chapel for imperious Pope Julius II(Rex Harrison) in this epic adaptation of Irvine Stone’s novel directed by Carol Reed.  While the novel covers Michelangelo’s life from birth to death, the film focuses on the battle of wills between the perfectionist artist and the impatient Pope who commissions (and eventually commands) him to paint the famed chapel.” 

Assistant Curator of Education Elisabeth Palmer will introduce the film and lead a brief discussion following.  The Museum will provide complimentary popcorn, and beverages will be available for purchase.
