Essential Art House: Last Holiday
|Price:||+ $3.99 shipping|
Told by his doctor that he has no more than a few months to live, drab British workingman George Bird (Alec Guinness) decides to spend his savings on lodging at a seaside resort. Once there, however, he finds his identity caught between upstairs and downstairs, the guests and the “help.” A droll social commentary as well as an unpredictable dark comedy about life, death, and luck, Last Holiday is one of Guinness’s finest moments.

Yes, the print is not up to Criterion standards, but it's good enough to thoroughly enjoy from start to finish.

One of the best Brit. films you could own.
The film could be well considered as ironic. With an ironical ending that also shows the fickle nature of people and their attitudes towards others.
