George Cukor, 1979
USA | Format: DVD | 99 minutes

Free screening!

Cukor's second and final film for television is an adaptation of Emlyn Williams's autobiographical play, previously filmed in 1945 with Bette Davis in the lead role. In their final collaboration, Cukor regular Katharine Hepburn stars as the willful schoolteacher Lily C. Moffat, whose efforts to set up a school in a Welsh coal-mining town are met with local opposition. In a reverse-Pygmalion scenario, Moffat sets out to educate one prize pupil and send him to Oxford. Complimentary tickets will be available at the box office on a first-come, first-served basis starting one hour prior to the event.
