Description

Details

For fifty years, Harold Pinter has been at the centre of theatrical life and it is difficult to over-estimate the impact of his work.

His 29 plays are almopst continually in production. His contribution to British film is also enormous, including The Go Between, The French Lieutenant's Woman, The Comfort of Strangers and, most recently, Kenneth Branagh's 2007 version of Sleuth.

Working with Pinter is a film which permits viewers unprecedented access to the rehearsal room. It captures Pinter collaborating with actors as they rehearse scenes from his plays, a process never before filmed to this extent, or so candidly. 

We also see Pinter in revealing interview with his schoolfriend and theatrical partner for over sixty years, Henry Woolf. 

The film captures intimately the essence of Pinter as a playwright, actor, political activist and intellectual of true integrity.
