Phenomena Summernights: Arsenic and Old Lace

  • Film, Drama

Time Out says

Frank Capra. USA, 1944. Original language, Spanish subtitles. 118'.
Mortimer's (Cary Grant) aunties are adorable. They bake cakes, they take their neighbour's child to the cinema... and they kill old, lonely men who rent a room from them. It's just a nasty little habit of theirs that Mortimer will have to put an end to while trying to get away from his criminal brother, their accomplice, the last body poisoned by his aunts and other surprises that will turn his honeymoon an crazy hot mess. One of the funniest films from the always charming Frank Capra.
