CGiii Comment

Loosely based on Guy Burgess' schooldays...and, the dreamy idealism of it all.

With privilege - it makes growing-up so much easier.

Charm and beauty abound, an almost perfect script and sublime, youthful acting.

Timeless.

A totally plausible process for the creation of a spy - the betrayal, the blackmail.

The(ir) Blurb...

Based on the award winning play by Julian Mitchell, the film explores the effect of Public School life in the 1930's on Guy Bennett as his homosexuality and unwillingness to "play the game" turns him eastwards towards communist Russia.
