Screen legends Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman reunite in this lively adaptation of Norman Krasna’s 1953 stage play, Kind Sir.

A beguiling love story delicately deranged by the complications of sophisticated comedy.


Wealthy and unmarried, stage actress Anna (Ingrid Bergman) is looking to settle down but there is a scarcity of eligible bachelors in London society. A chance encounter with the handsome financier Philip Adams (Cary Grant) sets sparks flying, but fearing a lengthy commitment, Philip pretends to be a married man (albeit a separated one). Undeterred, Anna embarks upon an ‘affair’ with Philip, and the two enjoy a sophisticated romance. When she discovers Philip’s ruse, the heartbroken Anna decides to teach him a lesson.

After they created movie magic with Alfred Hitchcock in his 1946 classic Notorious, Bergman and Grant proved with Indiscreet that their on-screen chemistry had not dimmed in the slightest. Friends off-screen for many years, the pair's rapport is immediately apparent.

Notable for its pioneering use of split screen technique, Indiscreet also features stunning costume design, with gowns designed by Christian Dior especially for Bergman.
