I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING
Cast: Wendy Hiller (Joan Webster); Roger Livesey (Torquil MacNeil); Pamela Brown (Catriona Potts); Finlay Currie (Ruairidh Mhor)
Young middle-class Englishwoman Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller) is determined to have the finer things in life, and to that end she plans to marry Sir Robert Bellinger (Norman Shelley), a wealthy, elderly man whom she does not love. En route to the Island of Mull, where her future husband resides, Joan is stranded in a colorful Scottish seacoast town. Inclement weather keeps her grounded for a week, during which time she falls in love with young, naval officer Torquil McNeil (Roger Livesey). Ignoring the dictates of her heart (not to mention common sense), Joan stubbornly insists upon heading out to sea towards her marriage of convenience, but the exigencies of Mother Nature finally convince her that her future resides on the Mainland.
The film is highly regarded as one of the best of the Powell-Pressburger films of the 1940s.
