Yes movie parties are back! If you have not yet seen this wonderful film, put it on the bucket list!
Now, Voyager is a 1942 American drama film starring Bette Davis, Paul Henreid, and Claude Rains, and directed by Irving Rapper. The performances are nothing short of brilliant. Davis transformation from an unattractive, repressed spinster-- whose life is brutally dominated by her tyrannical mother---into a confident self-assured young woman--is never forced or unbelievable. Henreid as her love interest plays his role with compelling sincerity.
In 2007, Now, Voyager was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The film ranks number 23 on AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Passions, a list of the top love stories in American cinema. Film critic Steven Jay Schneider suggests the film continues to be remembered due not only to its star power, but also the "emotional crescendos" engendered in the storyline.

They don't make movies like Wuthering Heights and Now Voyager any more but they should! This kind of direction and acting has been replaced with special effects too much!ReplyDelete
