The Magnificent Ambersons
Directed by Orson Welles
Starring Joseph Cotten, Dolores Costello, Tim Holt, Agnes Moorehead, Anne Baxter

As the twentieth century creeps into the American Midwest, one high society family is the envy and the talk of the town.

They live through broken engagements, lovelorn jealousy, and a spoiled spiteful son.

While they cling to stubborn tradition, modern progress brings a reversal of fortunes.

For his next film after ‘Citizen Kane’, Orson Welles adapted the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Booth Tarkington.

The saga is grandly staged using his usual stunning play with framing and dialogue.

“The Magnificent Ambersons is still masterly. It’s the movie that all other films about families in decline are measured against.”

Winner of several acting awards from New York critics organizations.

Nominated for Academy Awards for best picture, acting, cinematography and art direction.

Sight and Sound polls have voted it among the greatest films of all time
