The Lehman Trilogy

July 28

Directed by Sam Mendes, this gripping drama follows a family and company on a magnificent road to ruin.

19/20 HD Broadcast

In 1844 a Bavarian Jew arrives in New York Harbor. Soon joined by his two brothers, their American epic begins and 163 years later, the firm they establish—Lehman Brothers—spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, triggering the largest financial crisis in history.

Directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall), this is a story of immigrants, showcasing American success and Jewish resilience. Three actors (Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles), who collectively play some 70 characters, deliver virtuosic performances, chronicling the family’s soaring ascent and ultimate fall.

 

This event occurred as part of the 19/20 HD Broadcast season. This is an archived view.

"It’s the miracle of three men, on a nearly naked stage, resurrecting vanished lives and worlds, leaving an oddly indelible afterglow in that final fade into darkness."
