Harold Pinter - Pinter's Progress and The Homecoming
Saturday 23rd October 2010
Coming to DVD on 1st November 2010 from 3DD Home Entertainment, Harold Pinter - Pinter's Progress and The Homecoming is a two-disc DVD collection capturing and celebrating the inspiring life and work of the writer and Nobel Laureate, Harold Pinter and includes BAFTA award-winning director Philip Saville's 2009 documentary on the playwright plus Sir Peter Hall's filmed production of what is widely regarded as Pinter's greatest play.
Directed by Philip Saville (The Life And Loves Of A She-Devil; Boys From The Blackstuff), Pinter's Progress presents an intimate take on Harold Pinter and his work through interviews and conversations with actors and directors who have worked closely with him. Among those featured are Sir Michael Caine, Jonathan Pryce, Steven Berkoff, James Fox, Susannah York and Sheila Hancock.
Directed in 1973 by Pinter's long-favoured collaborator Sir Peter Hall and starring Ian Holm, Paul Rogers, Michael Jayston, Vivien Merchant, Cyril Cusack and Terence Rigby, The Homecoming tells the tale of an expatriate philosophy professor returning to England with his new wife only to uncover bitter family jealousies. Widely regarded as Pinter's greatest play, this lost gem of 1970s cinema is packed with the blistering dialogue that became its author's trademark and has been hailed as "an engrossing rendition of Pinter's disturbing play... brilliant in its malevolent and macabre humour" (Talking Pictures).
