    (Michael Powell, 1969)
    Release date: 19 November 2018
    Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

    Based on Norman Lindsay's controversial autobiographical 1935 novel, Age of Consent is the story of an artist (James Mason), grown tired of producing art for wealthy Americans, who moves to the wilds of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef where he meets Cora (Helen Mirren), a teenage girl who inspires him and becomes his muse – as well as the object of his desire.

    The penultimate film from the great Michael Powell (Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes, Peeping Tom), Age of Consent explores the obsessive nature of an artist approaching the twilight of his career. Misjudged and mis-handled on its initial release (when the distributor removed key scenes and re-scored the film), Age of Consent is now regarded as one of Powell’s key works.

    (Albert Finney, 1968)
    Release date: 19 November 2018
    Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)

    After achieving international renown as one of the finest actors of his generation in films such as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960) and Tom Jones (1963), Albert Finney turned director for this surreal comic twist on the ‘kitchen sink’ dramas in which he’d made his name.

    Finney plays Charlie Bubbles, a successful writer suffering a mid-life crisis, who attempts to re-connect with his northern working-class roots and estranged family. Based on a screenplay by Shelagh Delaney (A Taste of Honey), the script clearly references both her and Finney’s personal experience of their shared working class origins (both were Salford natives), and the consequences of achieving great success.

    (Silvio Narizzano, 1966)
    Release date: 19 November 2018
    Limited Blu-ray Edition (World Blu-ray premiere)

    One of the defining films of the 1960s, Silvio Narizzano’s adaptation of Margaret Foster’s 1965 novel stars Lynn Redgrave in an Oscar-nominated role as the put-upon teenager Georgy Parkin. Awkward and full of self-doubt, Georgy finds herself forever just outside of the ‘Swinging Sixties’ London life she craves.

    Marked by a wonderfully warm and appealing central performance from Redgrave, and with its superb supporting cast including Charlotte Rampling (Death in Venice, The Night Porter), Alan Bates (A Kind of Loving, Women in Love) and the great James Mason (The Reckless Moment, Age of Consent, The Deadly Affair), Georgy Girl captures the spirit of the era – and boasts one of the all-time great film theme tunes.

    beat me to the punch, and for those that were worried about Mill Creek shoving two films on the same disc, Age of Consent looks pretty loaded, might just have to pick that one up again, this time in HD,

    Yet not good enough for the Sony restoration team here who have proclaimed the current transfer unreleasable, hence TT having its release on the back burner.
