Details

Once an eminent barrister, cynical drunkard John Sawyer (James Mason) leads a reclusive life, out of touch with the burgeoning youth movement of the mid-1960s. But when his daughter Angela’s (Geraldine Chaplin) boyfriend is wrongfully accused of murder, Sawyer decides to confront his demons and the changing world around him in order to defend him.

Featuring striking camera work from Academy Award-winner Kenneth Higgins and co-starring music legend Bobby Darin, this intergenerational drama (based on a novel by George Simenon) is a cult British classic ripe for rediscovery.

Previously unavailable on DVD or Blu-ray in the UK.

BFI Flipside is dedicated to rediscovering the margins of British film, reclaiming a space for forgotten movies and filmmakers who would otherwise be in danger of disappearing from our screens forever. It is a home for UK cinematic oddities, offering everything from exploitation documentaries to B-movies, countercultural curios and obscure classics, If it's weird, British and forgotten, then it's Flipside.
