Product Details

Based on Charles Dickens epic novel, this critically acclaimed film version was adapted for the screen by T.E.B. Clarke. A tale of great sacrifices being made for the sake of principle, Dickens’ original novel is notable for its vivid representation of France during the French Revolution. Sidney Carton (Bogarde) a disillusioned, heavy drinking London lawyer defends a young French aristocrat Charles Darnay (Paul Guer) when the informant Barsad (Donald Pleasence) accuses him of spying. Carton finds himself falling in love with Darnay’s fiancée Lucie Manette (Tutin) and, although he confesses his love to her, they agree to keep it secret. When Darnay returns to France, in the grip of revolutionary terror, he is imprisoned by a mob led by Madame Defarge (Rosalie Crutchley) on the orders of his corrupt uncle (Christopher Lee). Hearing Lucie’s pleas for help, Carton seizes the opportunity for action and, ultimately, redemption.
