Synopsis

Possibly the blackest of the famous Ealing comedies that lit up British cinema in the 1940s and 50s, Kind Hearts and Coronets is still most renowned for the astonishing lead performance of star Alec Guinness. In the story of an ambitious young man who embarks on a series of murders to secure a title and a family fortune, Guinness takes no less than eight different roles, subtly altering his performance and appearance for each family member. The result is a masterclass in great acting - and a darkly hilarious movie to boot.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
