Two for the Road (PG)
1967 UK directed by Stanley Donen, 111 minutes
With the recent deaths of Stanley Donen and Albert Finney, the world of film lost two outstanding figures. Donen will be best remembered for directing Singing In The Rain, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Charade. Finney’s performances in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and Tom Jones will guarantee the affection of British audiences. In Two For the Road Finney stars opposite Audrey Hepburn (with a score by Henry Mancini). Donen directs this love story (a love that doesn’t always run smoothly) with wit and intelligence. Beautifully filmed on travels through France this is a fitting way to remember great filmmakers.
