With introduction and post-film discussion by producer, writer, broadcaster and editor Catherine Bray. Catherine will explore this 1943 epic from the powerhouse pairing of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. General Candy (Roger Livesey), who’s overseeing an English squad in 1943, is a veteran leader who doesn’t have the respect of the men. Flashing back to his career in the Boer War and World War I, we see a dashing young officer whose life has been shaped by three different women (all played by Deborah Kerr), and by a friendship with a German soldier.
