Travel to the Beauregard Hotel where the eccentric guests all share one common trait - loneliness. There's Major Pollack (David Niven), who hides a dark secret behind a polished military veneer; Sibyl Railton-Bell (Deborah Kerr), a shy, neurotic old maid who lacks the courage to break away for her domineering mother; John Malcolm (Burt Lancaster), a disenchanted writer who drowns his bitterness in a pool of alcohol; and Ann Shankland (Rita Hayworth), whose narcissism masks a deep fear of growing old alone and unloved. In one emotional evening, these four unhappy misfits will bare their innermost secrets... and change each other's lives forever. Winner of 2 Academy Awards for Best Actor (Niven) and Best Supporting Actress (Wendy Hiller). Nominated for 5 more Academy Awards includes Best Picture, Best Actress (Kerr) and best Adapted Screenplay (Terrence Rattigan and John Gay).
