One of the screen's grandest epics, this monumental story recounts the true life experiences of T.E. Lawrence, better known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia. A young, idealistic British officer in WWI, Lawrence (Peter O'Toole) is assigned to the camp of Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness), an Arab tribal chieftain and leader in a revolt against the Turks. In a series of brilliant tactical maneuvers, Lawrence leads 50 of Feisal's men in a tortured three week crossing of the Nefud Desert to attack the strategic Turkish held port of Aqaba.
“Nothing here is black and white,” says a lawyer at the onset of this riveting French drama, a portrait of an acrimonious custody battle viewed from the perspective of the 12-year-old boy caught in the middle. Indeed, nothing is straightforward in Xavier Legrand’s compelling first feature, which has us alternately siding with and against its young hero’s parents, as they negotiate the aftermath of a painful marital breakdown.
Local indie filmhouse No. 6 Cinema, located in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, will be showing Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom on 23rd June.
