Synopsis – What to Expect from “Hobson’s Choice”
Hobson’s Choice is a classic British comedy film released in 1954 and directed by David Lean. It stars Charles Laughton as Henry Hobson, a successful and wealthy bootmaker in 19th-century Salford. Hobson is a widower with three grown daughters, Maggie (Brenda de Banzie), Alice (Daphne Anderson) and Vicky (Dora Bryan).
Maggie is the eldest and most ambitious of the three daughters. She is determined to escape the drudgery of her father’s shop and marry the man of her dreams, Willie Mossop (John Mills). Despite her father’s disapproval, Maggie is determined to make the match work and sets out to convince her father to let her marry.
Meanwhile, Hobson has his own dreams of success and wealth. He has ambitions to open a chain of shops, but is struggling to make ends meet. He is also determined to find suitable husbands for his daughters, without Maggie’s approval.
Maggie and Willie’s relationship continues to blossom, and he soon begins to take on more responsibility in the shop. He is able to make the shop more efficient and profitable, and Hobson is forced to recognize his worth.
With the help of her sisters, Maggie is able to convince her father to let her marry Willie. However, Hobson is determined to maintain control, and sets out to make Willie his partner in the business.
