MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS follows the Smith family, a well-to-do family living a comfortable and happy life in St. Louis. When father Smith announces that his employer is transferring him to New York, the family’s life is turned upside down. Especially 17-year-old Esther – who has just fallen madly in love with the boy next door – does not want to leave her life in St. Louis behind.

This feel-good film premiered on 31 December 1944. The film was intended as an antidote to the harsh reality of World War II. It became a huge hit and a landmark in the history of the musical genre: it was one of the first musicals in which characters, plot and songs were closely integrated. The songs, specifically composed for the film, do not stand alone, but drive the story forward.

American film director Vincente Minnelli has directed several classic musicals, comedies and melodramas, but this remains his ultimate masterpiece and the best possible cure for the winter blues.

Vincente Minnelli, USA, 1944, 113 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Judy Garland, Margaret O’Brien, Mary Astor, Lucille Bremer, Leon Ames.
