Starring: Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn

New from Criterion: An acrobatically inclined free spirit, following a whirlwind engagement, literally tumbles into the lives of his fiancée's aristocratic family, setting up a clash of values with her staid father while firing the rebellious imagination of her brash, black-sheep sister. With a sparkling surface and an undercurrent of melancholy, this film is an enchanting ode to nonconformists and pie-in-the-sky dreamers everywhere, as well as a thoughtful reflection on what it truly means to live well.
