The Manchurian Candidate (12A)


Free screening during Glasgow Film Festival 2022 (2 - 13 March)

Cold War paranoia and the shifting sands of American politics combine to chilling effect in this famously prescient thriller.

Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) is hailed as a patriot and a hero on his return from the Korean War. So why does his former commanding officer, Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra) have the same recurring nightmare suggesting something very different?

Marco’s quest for the truth propels a gripping tale of intrigue and conspiracy with a scene-stealing performance from an Oscar-nominated Angela Lansbury as Raymond’s monstrous, domineering mother.
