On Saturday, March 9th, Orange County film collective flickrhappy presents one of the greatest psychological horror films in film history – director Jack Clayton’s eerie 1961 classic, The Innocents!
A masterful and chilling adaptation of Henry James’s novella “The Turn of the Screw,” The Innocents stars Deborah Kerr as 19th century British governess Miss Giddens (Deborah Kerr), who arrives at a bleak mansion to take care of Flora (Pamela Franklin) and Miles (Martin Stephens), the wealthy household’s two children. Outwardly the children are little darlings, but there may be something unwholesome behind those sweet smiles. Are they possessed by malign spirits — or are all these events just the products of Miss Giddens’s own imagination?
Highlighted by Kerr’s brilliant and acclaimed performance, and a sharp screenplay co-written by Truman Capote, The Innocents ranks at #18 in Time Out’s list of the 100 Greatest British Films, won the Edgar Awards for Best Motion Picture Screenplay, and was nominated for two British Academy Film Awards, including Best Film of the year. Experience the spine-tingling twists on the big screen!
Proceeds from the screening will benefit two local Orange County non-profits: The Music Room and the Greater Orange Community Arts Theater.
