Location

Seattle, WA 98109

The darkest of Hitchcock's early films, Downhill follows the fall from grace of a schoolboy (Ivor Novello, reuniting with the director after The Lodger) who is expelled for getting a girl pregnant and subsequently disowned by his father. An early example not only of Hitchcock's interest in guilt and its transference, but also of his highly ambivalent attitude to family life, this is a deceptively rich and often elegant work.

With original score performed live by DJ James Whetzel.
