From the prestigious Powell And Pressburger team comes a stunningly photographed romantic comedy set on the Scottish Hebrides. Wendy Hiller stars as a headstrong young woman called Joan Webster who travels from England up to the Western isles to marry a rich lord. Stranded by stormy weather en route, on the remote island of Mull, she meets a new world of people, where there is much happiness but little money. There she also encounters Torquil, a landowner and naval officer (Roger Livesey). The two fall in love, and Joan has to decide for herself where and how her life will be lived.
Screening from a 35mm print.
