A Canterbury Tale
Powell and Pressburger’s beloved classic is a profoundly personal journey to Powell’s bucolic birthplace of Kent, England. Set amid the tumult of the Second World War, yet with a rhythm as delicate as a lullaby, the film follows three modern-day incarnations of Chaucer’s pilgrims who are waylaid in the English countryside en route to the mythical town and forced to solve a bizarre village crime.
