Bristol Film Festival: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Director
George Roy Hill
Certificate
PG
Running Time
105 mins

Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, George Roy Hill‘s comedy western was one of the biggest hits in the genre’s history, reviving Paul Newman‘s career and making Robert Redford a bona fide star. It’s dated a bit (that Oscar-winning Burt Bacharach score is pretty feeble, unless you’re some kind of retro-hipster), but remains charming and enjoyable.

This Bristol Film Festival screening takes place in Averys’ historic wine cellar with complementary South American wines. Go here for tickets and further information.
