BFI Blu-ray/DVD Launch: Scandal
+ Q&A with director Michael Caton-Jones, producer Stephen Woolley, writer Michael Thomas and exec producer Joe Boyd
Revisit this classic movie about the Profumo affair, with a fantastic ensemble cast.
Dir Michael Caton-Jones
With John Hurt, Joanne Whalley, Bridget Fonda, Ian McKellen
John Profumo, the UK Minister of War, is caught in a tryst with Christine Keeler, a young woman who has also been seeing a suspected Russian spy. Based on the real-life political scandal, the film stars John Hurt as Stephen Ward, the 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.
Newly remastered by the BFI from a 4K scan, Scandal will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on Mon 24 Feb.
