Singin’ In The Rain (U)
Dir. Stanley Donan, Gene Kelly
103 mins | USA | 1952
- Sun 17 Nov: 1pm
Part of the BFI’s nation-wide season celebrating the film musical.
What a glorious feeling…
It’s 1927 in Hollywood and the stuntman-turned-matinee-idol star of Monumental Pictures, Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly), is caught in the bumpy transition from silent films to talkies.
When the studio’s attempts to make their own talkie turn disastrous, it’s down to Don, his songwriter best friend Cosmo (Donald O’Connor) and ingénue love interest Kathy (Debbie Reynolds) to save the day… by turning the film into a musical!
Full of classic songs like Singin’ in the Rain, Make ‘Em Laugh and Good Morning, Singin’ In The Rain is pure singing, dancing, laughing movie-watching joy.
Featuring the finest talents and some of Hollywood’s most iconic scenes Singin’ In The Rain is a nostalgic tribute to the Hollywood of a bygone era.
★★★★★ – ‘Truly one of the greatest musicals ever made’
★★★★★ – ‘If you’ve never seen it and don’t, you’re bonkers.’
★★★★★ – ‘Never, in the whole history of American cinema, has such a collection of talents come together at the peak of their abilities to generate such an enjoyable and clever movie.’
