Kind Hearts and Coronets (U)
Cast. Dennis Price, Alec Guinness, Valerie Hobson.
This coolly elegant, subversive Ealing Comedy was originally billed as "a hilarious study in the gentle art of murder." Dennis Price is sublime as Louis Mazzini, an embittered young commoner determined to avenge his mother’s unjust disinheritance. Using a variety of imaginative techniques, Louis proceeds to eliminate every single nobleman and noblewoman ahead of him in the line of succession. In an inspired tour de force, Alec Guinness famously played eight different members of the same family, of both genders and a six-decade age span. Kind Hearts and Coronets is a timeless work of immense sophistication and has been beautifully restored. Don’t miss this chance to see it on the big screen.
