David Lean directed and wrote the screenplay for this E.M. Forster classic story. Set in 1928, this film portrays an indelibly sardonic picture of British life in territorial India.The story concerns Adela Quested (Davis), who is a free-spirited British woman, who has settled in India and is to marry Ronny Heaslop (Nigel Havers), a town magistrate. She is befriended by the charming Dr. Aziz (Banerjee), but it’s a friendship that ultimately leads to tragedy. The film won 3 1985 Golden Globes and had 11 Oscar nominations, among them Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. Peggy Ashcroft won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and Maurice Jarre also won an Oscar for Best Original Score.
The ticket includes Paddy Rawal’s new book: Curry, Korma & Kebab. More than just a cookbook, this is also a culinary journal. The recipes are an adventure into 20 cities in the four regions of India, many off the beaten track, offering a rare glimpse into areas worth exploring even if only from your kitchen. Curry, Korma & Kebab: 272 page hardcover, 250 recipes, over 100 delectable color photographs. Paddy will sign books.
