Brief Encounter (Re 2006)


United Kingdom 1945, 86 mins
Director: David Lean
Starring: Celia Johnson, Trevor Howard, Stanley Holloway, Joyce Carey, Cyril Raymond, Valentine Dyall

Directed by the great David Lean (LAWRENCE OF ARABIA) and based upon the play Still Life by Noel Coward, BRIEF ENCOUNTER is one of the genuine romantic classics of British cinema.

Bored with the security of married life, Laura Jesson (Celia Johnson) visits town once a week to shop and catch a film matinee.

On one such excursion, she accidentally meets Dr Alec Harvey (Trevor Howard) in a rail station waiting room.

Enjoying one another’s company, they soon become dismayed to find their innocent and casual relationship develop into love.

Capturing the imagination of an entire generation, Howard and Johnson give two touchingly underplayed performances as the ill-fated, would-be lovers and director David Lean offers one of his finest ever films..
