Based on the popular novel by James Hilton. This is the novel and film that gave the English language the word Shangri-La. It’s the wonderful story and beautifully photographed film of five people who stumble into a strange Tibetan Land where health, peace and beauty reign. Not everyone is happy however, with some wanting to leave producing a haunting finale. Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor. Winning for best Interior Direction and Best Film Editing. A true classic film and a must see for everyone.
