This year's most controversial film, and still banned for cinema release in America. Well, not actually banned, but nobody has the guts to release it.
The film is a remake of a 1962 black and white film directed by Stanley Kubrick, and starring James Mason, which has already been shown on TV here. Naturally the older version is not nearly so explicit.
The story is about a middle-aged man who marries a young mother, so that he can be close to her teenage daughter, since these two are having a bit of an affair. However, little darling's heart belongs to another, leading to tragedy all round.
