Seven Samurai, one of the most thrilling movie epics of all time, celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2024. The film tells the story of a 16th-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire the eponymous warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-plus-hour ride from Akira Kurosawa—featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura—seamlessly weaves philosophy with entertainment and delicate human emotions with relentless action into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.
