The Homecoming (1973)
First screened in July 2014
Director: Peter Hall. Cast: Paul Rogers, Ian Holm, Vivien Merchant, Michael Jayston, Cyril Cusack, Terence Rigby. Screenplay: Harold Pinter (based on his play).

Twitter Capsule: Stilted at times but finds a groove. Actors delineate characters who also serve as each other's warped reflections.

VOR:   Pinter's hard enough to stage, much less to evoke on film. This valuable record of Peter Hall's Royal Shakespeare and later Broadway cast offers a reasonably good primer.
