Gary Oldman (Hannibal) and Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) star in this stunning true story about a long-term love affair that ends with a shocking murder-suicide. Told in "sizzling flashbacks and forwards" (Elle), this Golden Globe-nominated*, "sharp, pithy, exuberant and unflinching film" (The Hollywood Reporter) from director Stephen Frears (Dirty Pretty Things)and writer Alan Bennett (The Madness of King George) "mesmerizes you, holding you in its thrall" (Los Angeles) from first frame to last. Frustrated writers, co-conspirators, friends and lovers, Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell (Oldman and Molina) serve respectively as protégéand mentor in each other's life until Orton's breakout success heightens Halliwell's sense of his own failure. With the young playwright's every new achievement, Halliwell's diminishing role leads him to a desperate attempt to keep them as equals forever. *1987: Supporting Actress (VanessaRedgrave)

After receiving two copies of the same dvd (Amazon error) found them both to be incompatable with my player, have returned both items.Published 6 months ago by Janice Walker
Good film on a slightly perverse subject. Great to see Alfred Molina and Gary Oldman when they were young. Vanessa Redgrave is excellent as always.Published 15 months ago by Sharon Goldstein

I have just rented this from Selby Library. This movie is long, but very good, "Prick Up Your Ear's", is a film that's Jaw-Dropping. Read morePublished on January 14, 2013 by Jean Greene
This arrived fast and was a very good quality.
The movie is rather obsure so I was pleased to recieve it.
Would purchase from buyer again.
Although a very grim true story this film is lifted by great direction and an incerdible cast. Joe Orton's life is put before you with great insight.Published on February 14, 2012 by Stephen Zeigler Jr
