Legendary filmmaker David Lean deftly explores the thrill, pain, and tenderness of an illicit romance in the dour, grey Britain of 1945. A suburban housewife meets a middle-aged married doctor by chance in a railway station waiting room. As their paths continue to cross, the pair start to meet regularly and their feelings for each turn from friendship into passion.
David Lean's unsentimental drama, starring Celia Johnson, Trevor Howard and Cyril Raymond, is arguably one of the finest romances ever made.
