Our monthly indulgent Sunday afternoon of brunch and a classic film.

In Journey to Italy, the enduringly iconic Ingrid Bergman gives one of her best, most emotionally nuanced performances as a woman facing a marital crisis while in Naples with husband George Sanders, whom she is increasingly estranged from. Bergman’s marriage to Roberto Rossellini, the film’s director, whom she met whilst making Stromboli (1950) and divorced her then husband to be with, caused no little scandal at the time. This controversy which haunted her career for many years is sensitively covered in the documentary Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words, which screens exclusively at IFI from August 12th. (Notes by David O’Mahony.)

Brunch + film €16; film only is normal IFI pricing. Sunday brunch is served 12pm – 4pm.
