The Browning Version

Michael Redgrave gives the performance of his career in Anthony Asquith's adaptation of Terence Rattigan's unforgettable play. Redgrave portrays Andrew Crocker-Harris, an embittered, middle-aged school master who begins to feel his life has been a failure. Diminished by poor health, a crumbling marriage, and the derision of his pupils, the once brilliant scholar is compelled to re-examine his life when a young student offers an unexpected gesture of kindness. A heartbreaking story of remorse and atonement, this is a classic of British realism and the winner of Best Actor and Best Screenplay honors at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival.
