A new 4k restoration of the multi award-winning British classic THE GO-BETWEEN on September 16. Available to own on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Download, audiences will at last be able to revisit the film looking better than ever as part of the Vintage Classics collection.
Featuring an outstanding cast that boasts Julie Christie (Far From the Madding Crowd, Don’t Look Now), Alan Bates (Women in Love, Far From the Madding Crowd), Dominic Guard (Picnic at Hanging Rock), Margaret Leighton (The Good Die Young), Edward Fox (A Bridge too Far, Ghandi) and Michael Redgrave (The Lady Vanishes, The Browning Version).
Set over the course of the sweltering Norfolk summer of 1900, Marian (Julie Christie) is set to be engaged to Hugh (Edward Fox), a well-bred viscount and her perfect match. Marian’s young brother, Marcus (Richard Gibson), invites his classmate Leo (Dominic Guard) to stay at the grand House for the holiday. Quickly, Leo becomes besotted with the vivacious Marian and, innocent of romantic and sexual matters, unwittingly becomes a pawn in the forbidden romance between her and eminently unsuitable local farmer Ted Burgess (Alan Bates).
As the oppressive heat intensifies so too does Leon’s burgeoning adolescent questioning of love, attraction and the rules of the upper class that he doesn’t really belong to. Both a beautifully subtle critique of the English class system and a visual masterpiece that perfectly captures the timeless beauty of an English Edwardian summer.
We’ve teamed up with Studiocanal and have DVD Copies of the film up for grabs, to win a copy, please answer the following question…
