    Wednesday, August 5, 2015 - 1:00pm

    Katharine Hepburn plays an attractive middle-aged secretary from Akron, Ohio, who has finally made it to Venice, Italy, for her long-awaited dream vacation. Never-married, she is a self-described "independent type" who's content, or so she claims, to go it mostly alone, armed with her movie camera. She soon discovers that even in a city as beautiful and fascinating as Venice, going it alone can still leave one feeling terribly lonely. All that is about to change, starting with a brief encounter at an outdoor café in the Piazza San Marco, where she draws the attention of a handsome antiques-shop owner played by Rossano Brazzi. Masterfully directed by David Lean.
