Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 345: Fri Dec 11

The Collection (Apted, 1976): BFI Southbank, Studio, 8.40pm

Here is a rare chance to catch a Laurence Olivier Presents TV production of a great Harold Pinter play from 1976. This is screened in the BFI Love season and can also be seen on 19th December. You can find the full details here.

Here is the BFI introduction:
Olivier selected Pinter’s award-winning drama – a forensic examination of sexual jealousy – for his series of TV plays for Granada. He’s perfectly cast as the ageing lover riddled with insecurity as his boyfriend receives a series of strange visits from a man who is himself convinced that the boyfriend is seeing his wife.
Marcus Prince

Here (and above) is an extract.
