($19.95 DVD; Henstooth Video)
Prior to his transformation into the bitter, plastic surgery-modified queen we know and loathe today, Rupert Everett starred in this magnificent adaptation of Julian Mitchell’s 1930s-set play as Guy Bennett, an openly gay spy, during his years at a private school where homosexuality stirs up scandal, blackmail, and tragedy. Colin Firth co-stars. While a two-disc 20th Anniversary Edition DVD was released 2004, it has since gone out of print and ballooned in price. This one-disc release from Henstooth includes a 1994 Cannes Film Fest news item, discussion of the original play with Kenneth Branagh, Everett and author Julian Mitchell.
