From Gay Essential

The film Another Country was directed by Marek Kanievska. Julian Mitchell wrote both the script for the original play of the same name as well as the screenplay for the adapted film which was released in 1984. Starring well-known actors, Colin Firth and Rupert Everett, Another Country shines the spotlight on the life of Guy Bennett’s early life as a homosexual in public school life in the 1930s, Marxist influences in his life and the Burgess-Maclean spy scandal of the 1950s.

Won “BEST ARTISTIC CONTRIBUTION” at the Cannes Film Festival

“This is the film that should have made Rupert Everett a bigger star than he is. His electrifying performance, as a homosexual public schoolboy barred from an exclusive prefects' society, is at once endearing and arrogant.”
   Tom Hutchinson, Radio Times

“Though the film's homophobia, bullying and brutality are fictional, they resonate with truth. Despite its violent subject matter (one boy commits suicide, Bennett is savagely caned), the film is aesthetically beautiful; dutifully acknowledging that in such a world, appearance is everything.”
   Vanessa McQuarrie, BFI ScreenOnline

“Another Country begins with painterly images of lush English countrysides before smashing the idyllic setting to expose hypocrisy and injustice. ”
   Michael D. Klemm, CinemaQueer.com

Reviews

  1. :

    Rupert Everett totally steals this film as Guy Bennett (modelled on notorious Cambridge spy Guy Burgess), in the story of his attempts to pursue a relationship with another boy at his Eton-esque public school c. 1930s in the midst of complicated school politics and punishments. Colin Firth brings a terrific sense of adolescent confidence to the portrayal of Judd, Bennett’s Marxist room-mate, and the rest of cast excels at capturing a spirit of tension and repression.
