KING AND COUNTRY
A British anti-war classic directed by Joseph Losey
Starring Dirk Bogarde and Tom Courtenay
Available in the UK for the first time ever on
BLU-RAY & DIGITAL and on a new DVD on 6TH NOVEMBER
STUDIOCANAL is thrilled to announce a brand new 4k restoration of British anti-war classic KING AND COUNTRY (1964) from esteemed American director Joseph Losey (THE SERVANT), available in time for Remembrance Day on Blu-Ray & Digital for the first time ever in the UK, plus a new DVD on 6th November, through the Vintage Classics brand. The new restoration of KING AND COUNTRY recently premiered at Venice Film Festival to great acclaim.
Returning for another stellar collaboration with director Joseph Losey is revered British actor Dirk Bogarde (THE SERVANT), seen here as Captain Hargreaves, a tough army lawyer assigned to defend army volunteer-turned-deserter Private Hamp, played by the brilliant Tom Courtenay (BILLY LIAR), whose remarkable performance earned him Best Actor at the 1964 Venice Film Festival Awards alongside a BAFTA nomination. Leo McKern (THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE) and Barry Foster (TWISTED NERVE) also star.
Set during WWI, KING AND COUNTRY is an emotionally powerful film that explores the effects of war on the human psyche. Based on the John Wilson play Hamp which itself originated from the 1955 novel Return To The Wood by James Lansdale Hodson, the film marked the third of multiple director-actor collaborations between Losey and Bogarde, which also included 1954 thriller THE SLEEPING TIGER, the ground-breaking 1963 drama THE SERVANT and ACCIDENT (1967), also now available from the Vintage Classics collection.
Produced from the original camera negative held at the BFI, the stunning new restoration will also include a brand new interview with Tom Courtenay alongside an archive interview with Dirk Bogarde and a gallery of ‘Behind the Scenes’ film stills.To enter simply name a show on our new Theatre Tickets Directory.
