YAH20 Brief Encounter

PG 87 MIN
Watch Trailer

Synopsis

‘It all started on an ordinary day, in the most ordinary place in the world.’ Achingly beautiful, the beloved 1945 romantic drama Brief Encounter is arguably David Lean’s finest work – striking at the heart, and at the soul.

Two strangers meet in a railway station café: a doctor and a housewife. Although they are both happily married, they fall in love and continue to meet – even though they know their illicit romance cannot last.

Adapted from a one-act play by Noel Coward, this is director David Lean’s most intimate and poignant film, and it was the first to land him an Oscar nomination. The two leads give pitch-perfect performances as the buttoned-down couple who find a new awakening after years of dull routine, while the accompanying musical score makes perfect use of Rachmaninoff's beautiful Second Piano Concerto.
