THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS

Directed by : David LEAN

Year of production : 1948 Length : 91 minutes

Synopsis

"The Passionate Friends" has been hailed by critic David Thomson as the David Lean film 'most deserving rediscovery'. Mary has chosen a comfortable secure life with her rich banker husband over romantic passion with her first love Steven. Turmoil ensues when Steven suddenly reappears in her life. With its subtle performances, nuanced direction and beautiful cinematography, Lean's absorbing romance, adapted from a story by H. G. Wells, is a fascinating companion piece to "Brief Encounter".
