Set in an island paradise during the Second World War, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.

60TH ANNIVERSARY

Nellie, a nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of Emile’s children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, she declines Emile's marriage proposal. Meanwhile, Lt. Joe Cable turns his back on a future with a Tonkinese girl out of the same prejudices. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe's life, Nellie realises that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.

Features legendary songs such as ‘Some Enchanted Evening’, ‘There Is Nothing Like A Dame’, ‘Bali-H’ai’, and ‘I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair’, South Pacific is a cinema classic.

Won an Oscar®.
