  • Sydney: State Library NSW Metcalfe Auditorium December 1 Sunday at 2pm. The Holly and the Ivy (1952), a festive season gem. "The Holly And The Ivy is a charming and moving seasonal favourite, peaking with the family's poignant reconciliation as they re-discover the true spirit of Christmas. This Christmas classic also stars Celia Johnson (Brief Encounter, The Captain's Paradise), Margaret Leighton (The Winslow Boy, The Go-Between) and Denholm Elliott (A Room with a View)." "For all those who think that the ultimate Christmas films are IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and WHITE CHRISTMAS, take a look at this remarkable and uplifting tale of a country parson, and revel in the sheer quality of the writing, the directing, and the superlative performances from a five-star cast. The script is faithfully and carefully distilled from a successful stage play of the 1950s - but the adaptation has none of that cardboard quality that is sometimes a pitfall of putting theatre onto the screen. Celia Johnson, Ralph Richardson, Margaret Leighton, a young Denholm Elliott, and a supporting cast of remarkable talent unfold this bittersweet but ultimately joyous story set in the claustrophobic confines of a country vicarage."
