Fucky Film Review!

David Lean 1950

A would-be typical story about a young Scottish woman who falls in love with a French dandy beneath her social status is made much more interesting (finally, after a very long setup) by a deceptive plot twist and quite a few unanswered questions. The trial at the end of the film is especially powerful for the way in which it presents the prosecution and defense in nearly equally convincing lights. I also really liked the scene in the country where the villagers dance with joy and abandon unknown to the heroine or presumably those in her class.
