With only days to the much-anticipated Roger of the Raj IV, you can’t miss this.
Sir David Lean CBE (1908-1991) was arguably one of the most influential directors of all time. Lean directed the large-scale epics The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Doctor Zhivago (1965), and A Passage to India (1984). They don't make them like that any more.
Our June Movie Night, will be 'Passage to India'. Set in the 1920s during the twilight of the British Raj, the film tells the story of the interactions of several characters in the fictional city of Chandrapore, namely Dr Aziz, Mrs Moore, Adela Quested, and Cyril Fielding.
A Passage to India received eleven nominations at the 57th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for Lean, and Best Actress for Judy Davis for her portrayal as Adela Quested. Peggy Ashcroft won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at 77 yo, the oldest actress to win the award, and Maurice Jarre won his third Academy Award for Best Original Score.
