Brief Encounter (1974)
Film legends Sophia Loren and Richard Burton star in this moody adaptation of Noel Coward’s emotional tale about a chance meeting that progresses from friendship into an unexpected but impossible love. Directed by BAFTA-winning Alan Bridges and scripted by John Bowen (both of whom had worked to great acclaim on TV’s Play for Today), Brief Encounter is featured here as a brand-new High Definition remaster from original film elements in its original widescreen theatrical aspect ratio as well as a legacy transfer of the as-filmed full-frame version.
When a tiny piece of grit in Anna’s eye leads to an unexpected meeting with Alec at the local railway station, neither of them could guess that what begins as a casual friendship could turn so easily into a tormenting relationship.
