How did I go this long without ever having seen this film? Watched it this weekend. Plot is simple enough: determined young woman who has always known who she is and what she wants out of life gets engaged to a wealthy man. She doesn’t love him; that’s quite clear. She’s journeying to a remote Scottish island to marry him and gets stranded in a tiny little town along with a naval officer who’s on leave. And then her her convictions are shaken to the foundation.
Wonderful performances from Wendy Hiller and Roger Livesey. It’s the kind of movie that I don’t think many people have made before or since. The setting (most of it was filmed on location) and the two leads are remarkable.
