One of the finest British films ever made, this black comic masterpiece is a hilarious study in the gentle art of murder.

Alec Guinness famously takes on eight different roles in the story of an ambitious young man (Dennis Price) who plots to secure a family fortune by creatively dispatching those ahead of him in the line of succession. One of the sharpest and subtlest comedies to come out of Ealing Studios, and arguably the greatest film it produced, Kind Hearts and Coronets has been beautifully restored in 4K for its 70th anniversary. 

“Technically brilliant and savagely funny, serial killing has never looked so much fun.” – PAUL M. BRADSHAW, LITTLE WHITE LIES

Kind Hearts and Coronets is screening as part of Film Feels: Obsession, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at
