Sparkling director Stanley Donen (Singin’ in the Rain) and witty screenwriter Frederic Raphael (Darling) bring us an iconic film of the 1960s, the gorgeously stylish 1967 drama-romance Two for the Road.

twofortheroad1_optA study of a marriage – via a quartet of road trips stunningly photographed by Christopher Challis – the film focuses on a starry couple, indeed, incarnated by two actors at the height of their powers: Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and Albert Finney (The Bourne Legacy), joining forces in moments that vary from the hilarious to the brutal to the deeply poignant.

Highlighted by a legendary score from Henry Mancini, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
