Academy Award-winning director David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, The Bridge On the River Kwai) tells the epic love story of a married Irish woman whose dangerous affair with a British soldier brings her accusations of betrayal. Set during the Irish uprising of 1916, this sweeping cinematic masterpiece, penned by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Robert Bolt (Lawrence of Arabia, Dr. Zhivago, The Mission) received two Oscars, including Best Cinematography. Sarah Miles (Blowup, Hope and Glory), who earned an Oscar-nomination for her portrayal of the love-torn wife, is joined by screen icon Robert Mitchum (Cape Fear, Farewell, My Lovely) and Oscar-nominee Trevor Howard (Gandhi, Mutiny on the Bounty, Superman). John Mills (Goodbye, Mr. Chips, Swiss Family Robinson) earned a well-deserved Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
