Scroll down past hero image

Director: Robert Wise

Cast: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker, Richard Haydn, Peggy Wood

Maria, free-willed and deeply connected with the beautiful Alpine landscape of her youth, is a conflicted postulant, debating whether or not she should give her life over to serving in Nonnberg Abbey. Her Mother Superior suggests that Maria should come to a decision after experiencing more of life outside the Abbey, and sends Maria to act as a governess to the seven children of Captain Georg von Trapp, an Austrian naval officer and a widower.

Maria arrives at the von Trapp villa to discover she's merely the latest in a long line of governesses the children have scared away. But, with her love of life, music and dance, she quickly wins them over, and is welcomed into the family. The von Trapp's delicate happiness is threatened, however, by a burgeoning romance between Maria and the soon to be married Captain, and the rise of the Third Reich in Austria that may see the Captain forced to accept a position in the German Navy.

As screens go dark

Many cinemas around the world have had to close their doors during the global Covid-19 pandemic. Film festivals have been postponed and cancelled. We tip our hats to all those cinema managers and staff, and to all the festival teams playing their part in keeping audiences around the world safe and well. 

We’re here for cinemas as they reopen and for festivals as they reschedule. We want to help.

Reach out to us to discuss

For joyful celebrations of cinemas reopening when it’s safe to do so (and a whole lot of chat about the movies until then!), head over to our social channels.
