Notorious poster

Alicia Huberman (Bergman) is the daughter of a convicted Nazi spy, who drowns her sorrows in promiscuous drinking. She is recruited by government agent T. R. Devlin (Grant) to spy on her father and his Nazi friends hiding out in Rio de Janeiro.  Whilst waiting for her assignment, Devlin and Alicia begin to fall in love, but when Devlin tasks her to seduce Sebastian (Rains), one of her father’s friends, Alicia assumes his advances were all part of his act to get her to cooperate.  She marries Sebastian to spite Devlin but, after their honeymoon, her life becomes endangered when he begins to suspect she’s a spy…

Kiss Notorious

Grant’s onscreen chemistry with Bergman is palpable and Hitchcock directs one of the steamiest screen kisses in cinema history. Don’t miss this opportunity to watch one of Hitchcock’s most sophisticated thrillers, starring his favourite actor Cary Grant in arguably one of his darkest roles.
