Black Narcissus (1947)
In one of Powell and Pressburger’s most celebrated masterpieces, Black Narcissus, we’re introduced to a group of Anglican Nuns assigned to a remote, windswept palace near the Himalayas in an effort to convert and develop the local tribes people.
Soon though, with the arrival of General Dean (David Farrar), their efforts become laced with conflict and jealousy as repressed desires take hold of the Nuns and their desolate convent.
Visually stunning and painstakingly remastered, this is not to be missed on the big screen.
“An extraordinary melodrama of repressed love”
