Quote: Omar Sharif stars in the title role of Doctor Zhivago, portraying the surgeon-poet over a half-century period.  Zhivago, who is married to Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin), an aristocratic girl with whom he raises a family, is also in love with Lara (Julie Christie), a nurse whose life has been destroyed by tragedy.  Repeatedly brought together and separated from each woman by war and revolution, Zhivago is torn apart by conflict.  He loves Tonya deeply but his poetic soul belongs to Lara.  Much like his beloved country, Zhivago’s spirit becomes battered by the devastation of war as he struggles to maintain his individualism in the face of overwhelming odds.
