A Ground - Breaking Film!

One of the most controversial movies of its time, this "thought-provoking" (Leonard Maltin ) comedy-dramafrom legendary director Mike Nichols (The Birdcage) is a funny, poignant look at relationships as seen through the eyes of two friends over a 20-year period.Superbly crafted by playwright Jules Feiffer, Carnal Knowledge is brimming with touching insights, sexybanter and powerful performances by three-time Oscar winner Jack Nicholson, Ann-Margaret, Candice Bergen and pop music icon Arthur Garfunkel.

Jonathan (Nicholson) and Sandy (Garfunkel) are college roommates who share an endless fascination - and obsession - with women.As time goes by, their relentless pursuit for the joys of the flesh becomes more competitive. And more damaging.Soon, Jonathan and Sandy's lives become a vicious circle of girls, booze and unfulfillment, and they realize only too late that - in the war of the sexes they are their own worst enemy.
