Certificate 15

With a harsh critical response at the time of its release, Ryan’s Daughter is a triumph of sensual storytelling for David Lean. Robert Bolt’s script reworks Hardy-esque formulae into a story about romantic excess and moral cowardice, set during the Troubles of 1916, woven into a vision of damnation. Freddie Young and John Mills won Oscars, and deservedly so.

*We are screening a good 70mm print of this film. We have imported the print from Sweden and it therefore has Swedish subtitles. We hope this will not be too distracting.
