I Know Where I'm Going!

1945 / 91min / DCP

DIRECTOR: MICHAEL POWELL & EMERIC PRESSBURGER

CAST: WENDY HILLER, ROGER LIVESEY

Taking its title from a Scottish folk song, Powell and Pressburger’s wartime romantic drama is
the cinematic equivalent of a swooning, blissful ballad. Middle-class go-getter Joan (Wendy Hiller) is set to be married to a wealthy industrialist, the crowning achievement to a life of incessant social climbing, but en route to her fiancé’s estate in the Scottish Hebrides she’s trapped in a backwater town by vicious weather, and while waiting the lashing rain out she can’t help but notice that Torquil (Roger Livesey), a local-born naval officer home on leave, is awfully cute... Both Joan and Torquil are shouldered with heavy burdens—hers is ambition, his is tradition—and to find their way to one another, each must help the other set aside the baggage they’ve carried since birth.
