Silver Screen

Room at the Top.  A first-rate movie made fifty years ago in England.  Have you seen it?  I hadn't until today.  

It's a biting drama of desire and the thirst to succeed, no matter the emotional cost.  At the heart of the film are exceptional performances by Laurence Harvey and Simone Signoret.  

It's the kind of movie Hollywood is incapable of making today -- an adult picture, driven by character and rich dialogue.

Don't miss it.
