The Bigger Picture film club will be showing ‘The Earrings of Madame X’ (1953) at 8pm on Thursday, 20 April 2017, Upstairs at East Dulwich Tavern.
In late 19th century France, the Countess Louise, wife of a wealthy general, sells the earrings her husband gave her on their wedding day to pay off debts, and she claims to have lost them. Her husband quickly learns of the deceit, which is the beginning of many tragic misunderstandings, all involving the earrings, the general, the countess and her new lover, the Italian Baron Donati.
Director: Max Ophuls

We say: It would be easy to dismiss this film for its mannered cinematography, those long lingering shots of costumes and jewellery - but what costumes and what jewellery! It's contrived, it's a classic and it's a film with a lot of heart. Just up our street.
Bar opens from 7pm. Film at 8pm.
