British aristocrat Tony (James Fox) hires the mysterious Hugo (Dirk Bogarde) as his household servant. The new employee soon begins to cause unrest in the household, and Tony is forced to send him away. But Hugo’s influence extends further than Tony realises, and he finds himself entangled in an intense psychological war with his former valet. Servant and master square off in a battle that redefines each man’s understanding of fear, desire and class.
The film will be introduced and given context by Peter Rainey, an SMSA member and cinema enthusiast, who returns to an earlier passion for films as a Program Director for a Queensland Cinema Group, now that he has retired after 40 years in the education profession.
This event will be held in person at our Henry Carmichael Theatre, Level 1, 280 Pitt Street Sydney.
