Brief Encounter (1945)

Series: Thursday Film Series

In this romance classic, a housewife and a doctor, each happily married to other people, have a short, passionate love affair that upends their lives.  Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson play the couple in this ‘veddy’ British film which was written by Noel Coward, based on his stage play, “Still Life”,  and directed by the great David Lean. The achingly romantic musical score is Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2.
