Cinema Unbound: The Creative Worlds of Powell + Pressburger
Tickets £5 full price / £4 concessions.

Dir. Michael Powell, UK, 1945, 93 mins. Cast. Wendy Hiller, Roger Livesey, Pamela Brown.

Headstrong Joan Webster (a wondrous Wendy Hiller) sets off, wedding dress in tow, to marry a rich older man on a remote Hebridean island. Stranded on Mull thanks to the weather, Joan finds herself struggling to cope with the unplanned turn of events. Powell and Pressburger weave their course of true love through flashes of surrealism, a life-threatening whirlpool and an ancient curse, disarming and enchanting in equal measure. But this is a film where small moments count the most – a cigarette passed between two windows or a slip on a ladder – as they build by stealth into something overwhelming. By the end we are left breathless and desperate to book the next night train and ferry to Mull.

Restored by the BFI National Archive and The Film Foundation in association with ITV.
