I Know Where I'm Going

Welcome to First Thursday Films

Every first Thursday of the month from October through March, THE 222 will present one from a diverse collection of “under the radar” films by exceptional filmmakers. They encompass a wide range of qualities from “jaw-droppingly imaginative,” uniquely thought-provoking, a bit of edgy and dark, to just purely joyful!

I Know Where I'm Going

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s irresistible love story stars the amazing Wendy Hiller as an arrogant and highly practical young woman about to marry for money. Stranded during a storm on an island off the coast of Scotland, she is forced to live among the down-to-earth Highlanders for eight days, during which a strange and mystical fellow named Torquil (Roger Livesey) intervenes as her magnetic diversion, and the two traverse heartbreakingly civilized rituals of polite courtship. “People who saw I Know Where I’m Going when it was new, and were enchanted by it, find that it is one film that fully lives up to its memories. Others, seeing it for the first time, are inevitably bowled over by its beauty and charm.”–William K. Everson (1947, 90 min.)
