WILD STRAWBERRIES: NORTH BY NORTHWEST

Director: Alfred Hitchcock

131 minutes| U.S.A.| 1959| Thriller


Wild Strawberries is our bimonthly film club for the over 55s.

The highly-anticipated new le Carré adaptation, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, puts us in mind of the very best spy films including this, one of Hitchcock’s finest and frequently voted the best. As the put-upon New York advertising executive, Roger O. Thornhill, Cary Grant is never better, relishing the mistaken identity which forces him to go on the run after he is implicated in a murder. With assassins James Mason and Martin Landau out to get him, and the mysterious Eve-Marie Saint willing to help, Hitch piles up the tension in some brilliant sequences including the famous Mount Rushmore and crop-dusting scenes. You might have seen it before on TV but when you find yourself dodging the cropduster as it roars through the cinema screen you’ll be reminded just why this spy film is so often considered the best.

€3.85 including regular tea/coffee.<
