A Kid for Two Farthings
A Kid for Two Farthings

To celebrate the release of a brand-new 4K restoration of director Carol Reed’s A Kid for Two Farthings, on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital from 26 February, we are giving away Blu-Rays to 2 lucky winners!

Starring Celia Johnson (Brief Encounter, The Prime of Miss. Jean Brodie), Diana Dors (West 11, Yield to The Night), David Kossoff (I Am a Camera, The Mouse That Roared) and Jonathan Ashmore in his sole acting role, the film is packed with memorable supporting characters including the affectionate Mrs Abramowitz (Irene Handl), blowsy fashionista Lady Ruby (Brenda de Banzie) crooked jewellery salesman Ice Berg (Sid James) and finicky tailor Madam Rita (Sydney Tafler).

In the vibrant Petticoat Lane community of East London, amidst the hustle and bustle of the ancient market, small shops and open-air vendors, Joe (Jonathan Ashmore) lives with his mother, Joanne (Celia Johnson) above the Kandinsky tailor shop, where Joanne also works.

Joe is innocently and earnestly determined to make the lives of his impoverished, hard-working neighbours better. Hearing Mr. Kandinsky (David Kossoff) tell a tale that a captured unicorn will grant any wish, Joe uses his accumulated pocket money to buy a goat with a single emerging horn, believing it to be a unicorn. His efforts to make dreams come true make this an enchanting film that explores the power of hope amidst hardship, through a child’s eyes.
