Synopsis

This is a rare cinematic gem and the first of our trilogy of films starring Greta Scacchi.

Mike Figgis’ remake of The Browning Version showcases some of the greatest talents in British acting and screenwriting. Adapted from Terence Rattigans’s play by Ronald Harwood, Miss Scacchi plays the young wife of a much-disliked classics teacher (Albert Finney) at a British public school, who is reaching the end of his career. With Michael Gambon in the role of the Headmaster, Mike Figgis’ film is a masterful re-telling of a well-known tale.
