"★★★★★ – masterpiece of romantic cinema" – Guardian

A chance meeting at a small Lancashire railway station brings together Laura Jesson and Dr Alec Harvey. Despite being married they begin an affair, but their happiness is marred by their deception and the realisation that eventually a choice must be made.

Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard star in David Lean's classic romance, based on Noël Coward’s one act play ‘Still Life’.

This screening is taking place at Leicester's Guildhall (Guildhall Lane, Leicester, LE1 5FQ).

Part of our 'Phoenix on Tour' programme, taking place across September and October.
