Brief Encounter (1945) – [35mm]


Brief Encounter (1945) |Cert PG |35mm| 91m| 1.37:1 | Dir. David Lean

Dirt In The Gate Movies & Shelley Theatre are delighted to screen David Lean’s brilliantly crafted classic British masterpiece from a 35mm film print on Valentines Day.

The Guardian quotes, ‘The Best Romantic Film Of All Time’

‘I love you. You love me too. It’s no use pretending it hasn’t happened, ‘cause it has.’ Celia Johnson, Trevor Howard, a station buffet…and one of cinema’s greatest romances on the big screen. David Lean and Noël Coward’s classic weepie is perfect for a late Valentine’s date – or for anyone who wells up when they hear the music of Rachmaninov.

Lean’s film is a simple but realistically-honest, unsentimental, self-told social melodrama of the quiet desperation involved in an illicit, extra-marital love affair between two married, middle-class individuals over seven weekly meetings, mostly against the backdrop of a railway station.

This is going to get emotional. Bring a hankie – or two.
