The Shop Around the Corner (PG)

Wednesday 21st December 2022 - Thursday 22nd December 2022

Dir. Ernst Lubitsch, US, 1940, 99 mins. Cast. James Stewart, Margaret Sullavan.

Deftly directed by Ernst Lubitsch from a smart, funny script by Samson Raphaelson, The Shop Around the Corner is a romantic comedy in the finest sense of the term. Alfred Kralik (James Stewart) and Klara Novak (Margaret Sullavan) are employees at Matuschek and Company, a general store in Budapest. They are constantly at odds with each other, butting heads and disagreeing on almost everything. Both are enamoured of their respective pen pals, who serve as welcome distractions in their lives. Little do they know, they are each the other's pen pal and, despite outward differences, have unwittingly fallen in love through their letters. Sound familiar? It is the film remade as You’ve Got Mail (with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan) - but the original is better! The perfect film to relax with in the hectic run-up to Christmas.
