In this masterpiece of 1930s cinema, two jewel thieves plot to rob a beautiful, young widow, with unexpected complications. Trouble In Paradise is witty, sexy, glamorous; a visual Art Deco feast, which crackles with sophisticated dialogue. Lubitsch is a master of the suave comedy, this is a delight not to be missed.
This film will be specially introduced by Mel Byron, is a comedy writer and performer and classic movie lover, whose show Old Movies Saved My Life was a hit at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe and will be touring the UK in 2019.
