Ian McKellen, Joanne Whalley and John Hurt star in this dramatisation of the 1963 John Profumo affair.
Dir Michael Caton-Jones
With John Hurt, Bridget Fonda, Ian McKellen, Leslie Phillips
UK Minister for War John Profumo is caught in a tryst with a young woman who has also been seeing a suspected Russian spy. In this film based on a real-life political scandal, Hurt plays Stephen Ward, the vulnerable, shady social fixer who becomes unwittingly entangled in the media fallout. It’s a great snapshot of 60s Britain and features an outstanding ensemble cast.
The screening on Saturday 27 January features a Q&A with producer Stephen Woolley, executive producers Nik Powell and Joe Boyd and writer Michael Thomas.
