The Pumpkin Eater
A moving and immersive portrait of a marriage in crisis, starring Anne Bancroft and Peter Finch.
Dir Jack Clayton
With Anne Bancroft, Peter Finch, James Mason, Maggie Smith
Anne Bancroft and Peter Finch excel as a dysfunctional husband and wife in this psychologically complex portrait of a turbulent marriage that ranks among the very best of 1960s arthouse cinema. Harold Pinter’s incisive script, Clayton’s considerate direction and a superb score from Georges Delerue skilfully immerse us in the emotional world of a woman on the edge.
