Ensemble Comedy 'Blithe Spirit' Is a Ghostly Good Time at the Virtual KCET Cinema Series on February 16th
Q&A immediately following with director Edward Hall.
A spiritualist medium holds a séance for a writer suffering from writer's block but accidentally summons the spirit of his deceased first wife which leads to an increasingly complex love triangle with his current wife of five years. Based upon the 1941 play of the same name by Noël Coward, the British comedy is directed by Edward Hall and stars Judi Dench, Leslie Mann, Isla Fisher, and Emilia Fox, among others.
“We just feel like people could do with being cheered up at the moment,” says writer-producer Meg Leonard, while writer-producer Nick Moorcroft adds that “this is a movie where you want people to go out for the night with a gang of friends and just have a laugh and actually just forget about everything. Enjoy great scenery, great locations, great funny witty performances and lovely music.”
Immediately following the screening, Deadline’s chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A with director Edward Hall ("Downton Abbey," "Restless").
The film screens on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. PDT. Only $10 per viewing link. Limited space available.
