About the Film
A landmark movie in the film-noir tradition, Chinatown stands as a true screen classic. Jack Nicholson is private eye Jake Gittes, living off the murky moral climate of sunbaked, pre-war Southern California. Hired by a beautiful socialite (Faye Dunaway) to investigate her husband's extra-marital affair, Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadly deceits, uncovering a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together.
Winner of the Best Original Screenplay Award at the Academy Awards. Winner of the Best Director, Best Actor and Best Screenplay Awards at the Golden Globes and the BAFTA Awards.
