Promising-sounding TV production of a good Terence Rattigan play
24 August 1999 | by xenophilSee all my reviews

This TV production is based on a play by Terence Rattigan, about Lawrence's life in the RAF after he turned his back on his life as a famous war hero. I have read the play - it seemed to me to convey Lawrence's complex and attractive character vividly.

I think Ian McKellan would be an excellent actor to portray Lawrence - I would very much like to see this film if I could find it on Video.
