Synopsis

Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Sony Pictures Entertainment are bringing Guess Who's Coming to Dinner to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event, which also includes an introduction from a TCM host. Joanna (Katharine Houghton) comes home with John (Sidney Poitier), her new fiancé.

Although he's a successful doctor and a Nobel Prize candidate, her parents, Christina (Katharine Hepburn) and Matthew (Spencer Tracy), are taken aback when they discover John is black.

And as John's parents also have their doubts over the impending marriage, the good doctor has his work cut out for him, as he won't marry Joanna unless there's unanimous parental consent.

  • 5 stars "Serious star power in this, a moving portrayal of inter-racial love and the difficulties experienced by those it touches. The film offers a fanciful plot that is entirely unrealistic, yet the amazing performances allow viewers to place themselves in those roles, experiencing the painful emotions of the discomforting reality of life."
