Wendy Hillier stars in Powell and Pressburger’s classic romantic comedy about a young woman who discovers the true meaning of wealth. Joan Webster has her life mapped out, beginning with marriage to a rich industrialist. Her plans go wrong when she finds herself stranded on the way to a remote Scottish island and falls in love with a penniless young sailor. Filmed on location in the Isle of Mull, this is the fourth collaboration between Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (The Red Shoes, A Matter of Life and Death). One of their best-loved movies, the film is beautifully played by all the cast, but especially the two leads who move apparently effortlessly from strangers to acquaintances to something more.
“I reached the point of thinking there were no more masterpieces to discover,
until I saw I Know Where I’m Going!”
