this was a pleasant romp. david lean is remembered for his big epics like lawrence of arabia and dr zhivago but his more homespun romances and comedies are often a delight as well. won a bafta for best british film in 1954.

Summertime with Katherine Hepburn is one of my faves directed by Lean.

Brenda de Banzie is really good in Hobson's Choice. Interesting female role for the time.

the play it was based on was written in 1916. (this was the second movie adaptation.) from the description it seems pretty similar. perhaps the husband isnt quite as meek in the original, its somewhat vague in the retelling, but the banzie role still seems like the one driving the action forward. doesnt seem unusual for a play, though what do i know, maybe its particularly british. they suggest king lear as an inspiration with the foolish father and three daughters, one headstrong and true of heart.

  • a lesson in forbearance for the ages. now try palm springs which i uploaded to core. theres even more drinking and nihilism but with a lighter touch and far more contemporary.
