Writer and co-director Kate Connor provides viewers with an inside look into a rarely glimpsed aspect of World War II life in America. She plays her own grandmother, Ruby Stirn, in this drama about a couple in a Wisconsin POW camp. When Frank Stirn (Eric Stoltz) accepts a job as a barber on the camp at Fort McCoy, he and his family find their lives upturned by the relocation. Soon, conflict ignites with imprisoned Nazi officers and romance blooms between Ruby’s sister and a Jewish soldier.

This dry comedy by the famed Ealing Studios, which won the Academy Award that is now known as Best Original Screenplay, addressed post-war societal concerns with clever, farcical antics. Alec Guinness plays a mild-mannered bank clerk who befriends a similarly down-and-out souvenir maker (Stanley Holloway), and the two of them scheme to melt gold bullions into toy Eiffel Towers and sneak them into France. They hire a pair of lowlife crooks to aid in their plot, which unfurls to often-hilarious results.
This adaptation of Joyce Cary’s novel, which is considered to be one of the most evocative movies about a painter ever made, stars Alec Guinness as an eccentric, penniless artist who is obsessed with achieving perfection, much to the dismay of the other people in his life—particularly those who own the walls on which he attempts his murals. Sharp writing (by Guinness), bold Technicolor photography, and occasional slapstick humor make this is a lively portrait of an artist.
David Lean directed what has been called “the greatest of all Dickens films” with this classic adaptation, which includes some of the author’s most-loved characters, including Pip, Estella, Herbert Pocket, Mr. Wemmick, and of course, Miss Havisham. From the chilling graveyard to Miss Havisham’s cobweb-strewn, anachronistic house, this film brings to vivid life the colorful world of Dickens and boasts an array of images that are forever etched in the imaginations of filmgoers.
This fall, 16 of the most revered British films of all time are coming to Portland Museum of Art.
