F. W. Murnau's Sunrise: A Song for Two Humans

F W Murnau's long-cherished masterpiece tells the story of a naive countryman (George O'Brien) living an idyllic, bucolic lifestyle with his virtuous wife and young child. The serenity is shattered when a beautiful femme fatale from the city (Margaret Livingston) enters his life. He soon falls madly in love with her, aware for the first time that there may be more to the world than the life he has settled for. As their secret passion intensifies, the femme fatale convinces the countryman to kill his wife so they can be together forever. The countryman is then forced to choose between what he desires and what is just.
