Focus on Free Classics

You can stream The Motorcycle Diaries (2004) for free on Facebook at 9 pm ET tonight, and then The Constant Gardener (2005) and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) on the next two Fridays (September 1 and September 8).

The screenings celebrate the 15th anniversary of NBCUniversal-owned film company Focus Features.

All three movies are Oscar winners:

  • The Motorcycle Diaries, an autobiographical depiction of a young Che Guevera, for Best Original Song (“Al Otro Lado del Río”);
  • The Constant Gardener for Best Actress (Rachel Weisz, who co-stars in the political thriller with Ralph Fiennes);
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind for Best Original Screenplay (Charlie Koufman, Michel Gondry, Pierre Bismuth). It’s a tale of  a couple (Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet) who break up, erase each other from their memories, and thus fall in love.
