A screening of the new 35mm print of Hitchcock's stylish espionage thriller staring Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. Beautiful Alicia (Bergman) is an alcoholic socialite living in South America. She falls for the dashing US agent Devlin (Grant) and there is a real sense that she will turn her life around but as Devlin emotionally blackmails her into seducing a German expatriate suspected of Nazi affiliations, emotional darkness falls over the three characters and a mood of unease builds... Written by the great Ben Hecht, this is a taut suspenseful tale of trust and betrayal, exploitation and sacrifice.
