Iconic. Unforgettable. A national treasure. And even as time goes by, Casablanca remains one of the greatest romances ever made.
“There’s a reason the world loves this film: more memorable dialogue than should be strictly legal, heartbreaking performances from the two leads and a plot that works with Swiss-watch precision.” – David Gritten, Daily Telegraph
It could’ve been just another average wartime studio picture — no one was expecting a great movie. But luckily for everyone, destiny intervened with story, lighting, music, and the unparalleled acting chops of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman coming together with gloriously perfect precision and unparalleled craftsmanship. There’s a lot more that could be said about cynical, heartbroken American expatriate Rick Blaine (an exceptionally world-weary Bogart) and Ilsa (a never-more-beautiful Ingrid Bergman), the mysterious woman who walks into his Moroccan gin joint from out of the past and insinuates her way back into his life, but it all comes down to this: If you miss this opportunity to see Casablanca on the big screen on the most romantic night of the year, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life. Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and featuring a stellar line-up of supporting actors, including Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet and Conrad Veidt, Casablanca is an American classic that can be watched (and fallen in love with) over and over again. (Dir. by Michael Curtiz, 1942, USA, 102 mins., Rated PG)
