I Know Where I'm Going To Screen At Heritage House

Thursday, March 1, 2018

Powell and Pressburger's romantic classic I Know Where I'm Going will have a free screening at the Heritage House Sunday, March 11, at 6 p.m. 

Review for I Know Where I'm Going: 

Young middle-class Englishwoman Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller) is determined to have the finer things in life, and to that end she plans to marry wealthy middle-aged industrialist Sir Robert Bellinger, the product of an arranged marriage whom she does not love.  

En route to the (fictitious) Isle of Kiloran in the Scottish Hebrides (where her future husband resides), Joan is stranded in a colorful Scottish seacoast town by inclement weather. While there, fate and the mystical ways of ancient Scotland intervene to direct Joan's life on a totally unforeseen, yet happier journey. 

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (known as 'The Archers') together made such influential films as The Red Shoes (1948), Black Narcissus (1947), Stairway to Heaven (1946), and The Lie and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943). 

I Know Where I'm Going is widely considered one of the best of the Powell-Pressburger films of the 1940s, and arguably the team's all-time best romantic drama. Chock to the brim with large and small delights, the film possesses both an engaging story line and a wonderful sense of Scottish regional detail. Part of the film’s allure also lies in its cast of likable and endearing, three-dimensional characters made up of many Powell-Pressburger regulars, including Roger Livesey, Pamela Brown and Finlay Currie. 

"We hope you can join us for a highly memorable evening of classic cinema," said Kris Jones, curator of the International Film Series at Heritage House. 

The Heritage House is at 1428 Jenkins Road.
