Seniors’ Free Matinee: The River
Jean Renoir follows the life and loves of a group of young women growing up Bengal in the closing years of the Raj.
Dir Jean Renoir
With Patricia Walters, Radha, Adrienne Corri, Esmond Knight
This adaptation of Rumer Godden’s novel (with a script co-written by Godden) takes place in the closing years of the Raj and follows the life and loves of a group of young women growing up Bengal. Jean Renoir’s first colour film, made with assistance from Satyajit Ray, was shot in glorious Technicolor and filmed entirely on location. It garnered many festival awards and remains one of his most popular films.
Free for over-60s (booking by phone or in person only), otherwise normal matinee price.
