This unconventional romance follows the post-war adventures of Joan Webster, an ambitious and stubborn middle-class Englishwoman determined to fulfil her goal of marrying a wealthy industrialist on the Western Isles of Scotland.
This black-and-white classic is perhaps the most captivating of Powell and Pressburger's films, combining exquisite photography, a fascination with the local culture and a sequence celebrating the Scottish Gaelic language.
Directors: Michael Powell and Emric Pressburger
