Synopsis

60 years after it swept the Oscars, Minnelli’s dazzling dance extravaganza returns to the screen with a new digitally restored print.Gene Kelly is at his toe-tapping best as Jerry Mulligan, a former GI who dreams of finding success as an artist. A chance encounter with shopgirl Lise (Leslie Caron), however, throws his life into a whirlwind of romantic roundabouts. Featuring the uplifting number, ‘I Got Rhythm’, and a spectacular ballet finale played out to Gershwin’s titular score, An American in Paris remains one of the finest examples of the musical form.
