Film Review

From directors Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (A Matter of Life and Death, The Red Shoes), I only really wanted to see this because it featured in the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, I can't completely see why. Basically middle-class, ambitious and stubborn Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller) wants the finer things in life, and is planning to marry wealthy middle-aged industrialist (who you never see) Sir Robert Bellinger (Norman Shelley), who she does not love.
