1960. USA. Dir: Elia Kazan. With Montgomery Clift, Lee Remick. 110 min.
Cultures clash when Washington rep Clift struggles to get a stubborn old Southern lady off her land before a TVA dam floods the valley. Romancing her daughter doesn’t quite help, especially when cantankerous locals begin to take issue. Kazan’s secret masterpiece is an ode to understanding and uncertainty in changing times. Intro by David Laub, Center for Film Studies.
