Starlight Classics Night! **Introduction by Patrick Jennings, children’s book author.**

An angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy. She plays an umbrella-shop owner’s delicate daughter, glowing with first love for a handsome garage mechanic, played by Nino Castelnuovo. When the boy is shipped off to fight in Algeria, the two lovers must grow up quickly. Exquisitely designed in a kaleidoscope of colors, and told entirely through the lilting songs of the great composer Michel Legrand, THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time.*

NR, 92 min. French with subtitles.

"A glorious romantic confection unlike any other in movie history." – Washington Post

"Catherine Deneuve won the Best Actress prize at Cannes, but the vocal performances of the entire ensemble are impeccable. Pure cinematic magic." – Empire Magazine

"Charm may be in the eye of the beholder, but if you don't find this movie irresistible, you should get your eyesight checked." – The Ringer
