Synopsis

North by Northwest is widely regarded as one of the finest movies in the career of its legendary director, Alfred Hitchcock. A classic chase movie, the film stars Cary Grant as a suave executive who is mistaken for a spy and tirelessly pursued by enemy agents. All of Hitchcock's cinematic trademarks are present, and set to a blistering score by Bernard Herrmann, while the story's bold mix of slick comedy and nightmarish thriller works perfectly.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
