Ben (Bates) is a man full of energy that he doesn't know what to do with. He's lost a grip on what gives his life purpose, he's not sure that teaching is of any use or that he's even meant to be a teacher and he's feasting off the dregs of his relationships.
In this first American Film Theatre Collection release, Harold Pinter makes a very impressive directorial debut, creating intricate characterisations in a movie that is necessarily theatrical but not stagey. Alan Bates recreates on celluloid his legendary Tony award-winning performance which is simultaneously hilarious and heart-breaking.
