Katharine Hepburn – in only her second film – delivers one of her very greatest performances in this classic tale of forbidden love and moral society. Hepburn (Little Women, The Lion In Winter) stars as Lady Cynthia Darrington, a pioneering female aviator. When she meets distinguished – and married – politician Sir Christopher Strong at a party, she is immediately drawn to him.
Unable to resist each other, they undertake an intense and emotional affair. But as their passions escalate, so too does the risk of discovery – and if polite society ever learns of their liaison then they could be very badly hurt...
