“A dark tale of love and frustration, of sympathy and revenge.” - New York Times
Mystery, murder and passion from the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock! Screen legends Ingrid Bergman (JOAN OF ARC) and Joseph Cotten (CITIZEN KANE) star in this lush Technicolor drama. Cotten plays Sam Flusky, a native Briton banished to Australia for murder. Bergman’s his wife Henrietta, the disturbed sister of the man Flusky was convicted of killing. Is Henrietta going insane, or is someone trying to drive her mad? Is she merely an alcoholic, or is someone trying to poison her? No one but Hitchcock could handle these questions with such surefire tension, and the performances by the entire cast are excellent. A rich account of emotional self-sacrifice, UNDER CAPRICORN is that rare film which captures the humanity of its characters while keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.
