Kurt Vonnegut Jr’s classic sci-fi novel comes to life in this haunting film from acclaimed director George Roy Hill (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting).
Starring Michael Sacks as Billy Pilgrim, this dazzling and thought to provoke sci-fi drama co-stars Ron Leibman (Rachel’s father in Friends) and Valerie Perrine (Superman, Superman II). Sacks retired from film in 1984, ending up as a Chief Operating Officer for Morgan Stanley on Wall Street.
In 1972 Slaughterhouse Five was nominated for the Palme d’Or and won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
During World War II Kurt Vonnegut Jr survived the Allied firebombing of Dresden which killed 130,000 people. He was also a prisoner of war and was captured at the Battle of Bulge on December 22, 1944. He used these experiences in his book.
With regards to the adaptation of Slaughterhouse Five, Kurt Vonnegut Jr said: “I drool and cackle every time I watch that film because it is so harmonious with what I felt when I wrote the book.”
