UK 1971 | Colour | 116 mins | Cert PG | Drama
Cast: Alan Bates, Julie Christie, Dominic Guard, Margaret Leighton, Michael Redgrave
In the last of Losey’s three happy collaborations with Pinter based on novels about socio-sexual tensions in a class-ridden Britain, an innocent boy staying at a grand country house in Edwardian Norfolk becomes the messenger in a clandestine love affair. Losey studied the Norwich School of painters for a detailed, near faultless film to which Bates brought echoes of his recent appearances in adaptations of Lawrence and Hardy, two of the director’s favourite writers.
