Dublin; June 16, 1904. Stephen Dedalus, who fancies himself as a poet, embarks on a day of wandering about the city during which he finds friendship and a father figure in Leopold Bloom, a middle-aged Jew. Meanwhile, Bloom's day, illuminated by a funeral and an evening of drinking and revelry that stirs paternal feelings toward Stephen, ends with a rapprochement with Molly, his earthy wife. Written by
Did You Know?
When the film was submitted to the BBFC in 1967 they requested 29 cuts to remove strong language and crude sexual references from Molly's final soliloquy. In return director Joseph Strick
replaced all the offending footage with a blank screen and a high pitched shrieking sound. This resulted in the BBFC rescinding the cuts and passing the film fully intact. See more
