Adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel released the year before, Strangers on a Train features some of Alfred Hitchcock’s most iconic train sequences. The hook is ingenious: two strangers, Bruno and Guy (Farley Granger, Robert Walker), meet on a train and inadvertently agree to ‘swap’ murders to insure neither of them are implicated. As the plan quickly unravels, revealing startling and exhilarating consequences, Strangers on a Train turns into a breakneck ride of tense thrills that has remained unsurpassed. In fact, you might want to reconsider talking to fellow passengers the next time you journey on public transport!

The screening at 13:45 on 18 Nov at Stockroom Cinema will be presented with additional descriptive subtitles of non-dialogue audio. Visit our Accessible Screenings at LIFF 2023 page for more information and other accessible screenings at the festival.
