David Lean directed this beautifully acted, bittersweet adaptation of Noel Coward's play "Still Life," about two contentedly married English strangers, a doctor and a housewife, who meet by chance and then have weekly rendezvous in public places. The script, direction and Celia Johnson's performance as the woman were all Oscar-nominated.
