You don't have to fly off to London to see one of the National Theatre's most acclaimed recent works. As part of the ongoing NTLive series, where the renowned theater company's productions are rebroadcast around the world, you'll see the beautiful and imaginative stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. This big screen version gives you a sneak preview of the play before the live version opens on Broadway next season. In the hands of the National Theatre, Mark Haddon's celebrated novel comes to life in an exceptionally heartfelt production. The story follows the fascinating story of Christopher, a 15-year-old living with autism and struggling with the subtle yet powerful effects of a divorce that he cannot comprehend. One night, Christopher finds himself suspected of a heinous crime. Though he avoids and detests human contact, he uses his keen analytical mind to attempt a solution to the mystery and clear his name, even though he's been strictly forbidden by his father to do so. What follows is a harrowing journey that upturns his world and exposes him to the emotional dimensions that he fears so much. Learn More
More about the restoration:
The restoration of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent films has been the biggest and most complex restoration project undertaken by the BFI National Archive to date. Decades of damage and wear have been removed; the sharpness of the images improved; new shots discovered and intertitles and tinting restored. The BFI has used elements borrowed from seven international archives in the restoration process, but film materials from the BFI National Archive–including a number of original negatives–have been central to the project. Hitchcock’s silent films are essential to an understanding of his later work and these restorations now enable them to be seen afresh and discovered by new audiences across the world.
