Academy Award-winning director David Lean ("Lawrence of Arabia," "Doctor Zhivago," "The Bridge On the River Kwai") tells the epic love story of a married Irish woman whose dangerous affair with a British soldier brings her accusations of betrayal. Set during the Irish uprising of 1916, this sweeping cinematic masterpiece, penned by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Robert Bolt ("Lawrence of Arabia," "Dr. Zhivago," "The Mission") received two Oscars, including Best Cinematography. Sarah Miles ("Blowup," "Hope and Glory"), who earned an Oscar-nomination for her portrayal of the love-torn wife, is joined by screen icon Robert Mitchum ("Cape Fear," "Farewell, My Lovely") and Oscar-nominee Trevor Howard ("Gandhi," "Mutiny on the Bounty," "Superman"). John Mills ("Goodbye, Mr. Chips," "Swiss Family Robinson") earned a well-deserved Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
