Afternoon Film: Singing in the Rain (U) Accessible
February 13 @ 14:00pm - 15:45pm£3
Classic 1952 American musical-romantic comedy film directed starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, and Debbie Reynolds. A lighthearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent films to “talkies”.
A couple of silent movie stars are forced to make the switch to sound but the beautiful female lead has a voice that could cut glass…what can they do?
“The most enjoyable 102 minutes you’ll ever encounter in a cinema, Singin’ In The Rain is dazzling in its perfection: from the innocent exuberance of Kelly, O’Connor and Reynolds, to the clutch of great songs (Make ‘Em Laugh, You Are My Lucky Star and the immortal title tune), from the stunningly simple staging of the dance numbers to the wit of the screenplay, the story of silent movie stars adapting to the sound era is shot through with a cleverness and sophistication rare for the genre.” Empire
“This film is often considered the finest musical of all time.” Common sense Media
