UK | 1963 | dir. Joseph Losey, with Dirk Bogarde, Sarah Miles, Wendy Craig | 4K Restoration

A stunning new 4K restoration of Joseph Losey’s 1963 masterpiece. Adapted from Robin Maugham’s short story, The Servant marked the first of three collaborations between Joseph Losey and Harold Pinter. Nominated for five BAFTAs and winning three, including best actor for Dirk Bogarde and Best Cinematography for Douglas Slocombe, The Servant is notable for its willingness to engage with issues that were, at the time, never seen in British cinema.

Experienced manservant Barrett (Dirk Bogarde) starts working for foppish aristocrat Tony (James Fox) in his smart new townhouse. Much to the annoyance of Tony’s girlfriend (Wendy Craig), Barrett slowly initiates himself into the house and begins to manipulate his master.
