3 Film Festival: Topsy Turvy

Academy Award-winning Topsy-Turvy catches Gilbert and Sullivan, the famed playwright-composers, at a crossroads in their illustrious careers. Having scored numerous hits (The Pirates of Penzance and HMS Pinafore), they’ve reached a creative dry spot with their latest project. All seems lost when, thanks to his wife’s insistence, Gilbert attends a Japanese exposition in London. Soon, ‘The Mikado’ is born. An antic comedy and riveting drama from Academy Award-nominated director, Mike Leigh, ‘Topsy-Turvy’ was hailed by many critics as the Best Film of 1999.
