Another Country

This beautifully photographed film explores the effect of 1930s English Public School life on Guy Bennett. At his school, affairs between boys are accepted as long as it appears their homosexuality is a passing phase and they do not get found out. Guy's attraction for another pupil turns to love and he realises his sexuality is not just a transitory phase, which turns him into a target for criticism.
