Spin into summer with The French Connection; come and celebrate the 5th Annual St Albans Film Festival – this year’s theme is Speed!
William Friedkin’s 1971 gritty, fast-paced, and innovative thriller earned five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor.
Jimmy “Popeye” Doyle (Gene Hackman) and his partner, Buddy Russo (Roy Scheider), are New York City police detectives on narcotics detail, trying to track down the source of heroin from Europe into the United States - The French Connection.
But when one of the criminals tries to kill Doyle, the loose cannon detective begins a deadly pursuit that will take him far beyond his jurisdiction and far outside the city limits.
Come and see one of the greatest car chase sequences in movie history on a screen big enough to host it!
