In late 1930s Austria, a wealthy, grief-ridden widower (Christopher Plummer) with seven children hires an aspiring nun (Julie Andrews) who has proved not to be the best fit for abbey life, consistently frustrating the Mother Abbess and other sisters. As a governess to Captain Georg von Trapp, who runs his family like the naval officer he is, Maria is perhaps not the greatest fit, either. But through song and general joyfulness, Maria gradually warms cold hearts. But will she return to the convent? Will she and the von Trapp family escape Nazi takeover of Austria?
Winner of five Oscars and featuring one of the most famous soundtracks of all time, penned by the duo Rodgers and Hammerstein. Whether you’ve never seen the film (Roger Ebert purportedly never did) or have watched it upwards of twenty-five times, the landscapes, color, sound, and drama are worth a trip to the theater.
