PG
Casablanca is the classic 1942 romantic drama starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman that the AFI's voted the "greatest love story" of all time. In the midst of World War II, cynical American Rick Blaine has opened a nightclub in Morocco. Once a freedom fighter, Rick no longer feels a loyalty to any nation or anyone, but simply cares about his profits. Then, Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) walks into his nightclub and back into his life. Rick and Ilsa were lovers in Paris, but Ilsa deserted Rick when the Nazis invaded France. Now Ilsa arrives in Casablanca, like many European ''migr''s, trying to find a safe escape from the war, along with her husband, Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), an infamous and hunted leader of the French resistance. In Casablanca, lawlessness, bribery and the Nazi-controlled Vichy government all intersect with a colorful array of international characters from Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains), Ugarte (Peter Lorre) and Signor Ferrari (Sydney Greenstreet) making money off the desperate. Rick happens to hold two letters of transit that could save Laszlo's life, but will he help the husband of the woman he still loves? Director Michael Curtiz perfectly blends intrigue, romance and sly humor in this Academy Award winning Best Picture.moreless
