Edward II introduction

 This screening will be introduced by Kirsty Fairclough, Reader in Screen Studies at SODA, Manchester Metropolitan University. 

Film details

One of Jarman’s most accessible works, this modern-dress adaptation of Christopher Marlowe’s play merges the poetic, the raw and the angry. Central to the film’s pleasures are a cavalcade of first-rate performances, including Steven Waddington as the pleasure-seeking monarch, Tilda Swinton as his spurned wife, and Andrew Tiernan as his lover.
