BFI Review – I Know Where I’m Going! (1945)

I Know Where I’m Going!, 1945.

Directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.

Starring Wendy Hiller and Roger Livesey, Pamela Brown, Finlay Currie and Petula Clark.


Due to marry on the isle of Kiloran, Joan Webster sets off to Scotland to meet her future husband. At the final hurdle, she is stuck at the waters edge as it is too dangerous to cross. While waiting, she meets a comfortable man and they fall for each other…

“Kiloran” is as mysterious as Brigadoon. For one, it’s a fictional island played by Colonsay in I Know Where I’m Going! Our leading lady, Miss Webster, simply cannot get across to the distant isle despite her sincerest efforts. Powell and Pressburger’s Scottish tale of an English lady due to be married to a rich industrialist is set in the beautiful Highlands of the north and tells a tale of what true wealth may be.
