I Know Where I'm Going! in 4K

West Coast Restoration Premiere

For all of her thirty years, nothing has stopped headstrong Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller) and her persistent march toward her goals. Her latest: holy matrimony with a business magnate twice her age, who invites her to wed in the Scottish Hebrides. When relentless storms prevent her from completing her journey, she succumbs to the charms of the place and of one local in particular, who might be the first to slow her down. Written in four days and praised by Raymond Chandler for its evocation of the senses, this romantic tale reaches folkloric heights thanks to detailed location shooting and the unmatched world-building of production designer Alfred Junge.
