Cinema Unbound: The Creative Worlds of Powell & Pressburger

Powell and Pressburger’s charming love story set in the Hebrides is relatively unknown – which is astonishing as it is one of the greatest romantic comedies ever made.

In Detail

Plucky Englishwoman Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller) travels to the remote islands of the Scottish Hebrides in order to marry a wealthy industrialist.

Trapped by inclement weather on the Isle of Mull and unable to continue to her destination, Joan finds herself charmed by the straightforward, no-nonsense islanders around her, and becomes increasingly attracted to naval officer Torquil MacNeil (Roger Livesey), who holds a secret that may change her life forever.

It’s a remarkable study of a place and a people. This study is never quaint, traveloguish, educational or condescending. Filmed on location, the topography of the islands will stay with you long after the credits.

Screening as part of Cinema Unbound: The Creative Worlds of Powell + Pressburger, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
