A film by Roland Joffé

In the 1970s Roland Joffé (best known as the director of the Academy Award-Winning film The Killing Fields) directed some of television’s finest social-realist films, and he applied the approach to this truly remarkable version of John Ford’s drama. A tale of incestuous passion written around 1629 is translated to the early Victorian period and turned to critique the sexual and economic hypocrisies of the 19th century – and of the first years of Thatcherism.

With Cherie Lunghi, Tim Pigott-Smith, Kenneth Cranham

Running time 135 min
