Dir: Stephen Frears 1987
110 mins 35mm Colour Rated R (unclassified)
Starring Gary Oldman, Alfred Molina
Stephen Frears’ sixth feature is a fascinating portrait of the playwright Joe Orton, his lover Kenneth Halliwell and their defiant opposition to conventional British society. Brisk and blunt, the film benefits from a remarkable convergence of talent: adapted by Alan Bennett from the biography of Orton by John Lahr, and directed by Frears, fresh from the success of My beautiful laundrette, starring Gary Oldman and Alfred Molina, there’s a poignant love story at the centre.
