Cert: U Year: 1947 Length: 100 mins
Anglican nuns led by stern Sister Clodagh (Deborah Kerr) try to establish a community in the Himalayas, battling the locals and their own demons. This was a pioneering exploration of 'the social claustrophobia of people in extreme circumstances' (BBC). It's still famous for its stunning design and Technicolor photography (by Jack Cardiff). Watch out especially for Kathleen Byron as a nun losing her grip on reality, brilliantly acted, lit and filmed. 'Run, don't walk to see this 1947 classic from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. It's an all-time top 10 favourite of mine and seeing it digitally restored on the big screen brings a sugar-rush of pleasure.' (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)
