Celia Johnson’s middle class housewife dithers at a train station and gets a bit of dirt in her eye. Cue Trevor Howard who helps her and an oh so very British sexual/non-sexual affair develops. A classic of British WWII cinema. Showing at key cities only, see the Park Circus website for details of where.
