Win two tickets to The Bigger Picture: ‘Kind Hearts And Coronets’ on Mar 21st plus a main course each and a bottle of house wine at the IFI Café Bar.
This month, The Bigger Picture turns to comedy, one of the most difficult and unfairly maligned of genres. Although they represented just a small fraction of its output, Ealing Studios is indelibly associated with comedies produced in the space of a decade, such as The Lavender Hill Mob (1951), The Man in the White Suit (1951), and of course, The Ladykillers (1955).
Along with this last, Kind Hearts And Coronets represents arguably the jewel in Ealing’s crown, a deliciously black comedy in which poor-born Louis D’Ascoyne Mazzini (a wonderfully haughty Dennis Price) decides to murder the eight D’Ascoynes (all played by Alec Guinness) standing between him and a dukedom.
Before the screening, enjoy a delicious meal for two and a bottle of house wine at the IFI Café Bar.
The screening will be introduced by IFI Cinema Programmer Kevin Coyne.
