Joseph Losey directs Julie Christie, Alan Bates and Margaret Leighton in this late Victorian period piece where a young boy becomes the summer holiday messenger between a betrothed beauty and a tenant farmer on her family’s estate.
Harold Pinter adapts L. P. Hartley’s novel about class and inevitability. It is very beautifully orchestrated and bitterly felt but delivers nowhere near enough peak Julie Christie to warrant a rewatch.
