This fall, 16 of the most revered British films of all time are coming to Portland Museum of Art. From David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia, filmed over a year in Jordan and Morocco in 1962, to Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, shot in just 12 days and released in 2012, the British Film Series has something for everyone.
