Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.'s classic novel begins with the sentence, "Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time." This story comes to life in a haunting, 1972 anti-war comedy with Michael Sacks as Billy Pilgrim, a seemingly ordinary World War II soldier. However, nothing is ordinary about Pilgrim being shuttled back and forth from the horrors of war in a German prison camp known as Slaughterhouse 5; to his being a middle-aged optometrist in Ilium, NY; to his life as zoo resident on the planet Tralfamadore. This dazzling and thought-provoking drama from acclaimed director George Roy Hill co-stars Ron Leibman and Valerie Perrine with Glenn Gould's Bach renderings providing the plaintive soundtrack.
