Synopsis

Part of the American Film Theatre Collection, though British in origin and set in London, this Harold Pinter play is directed for the screen by Peter Hall. Teddy (Michael Jayston) brings his wife Ruth (Vivien Merchant) home to meet his estranged family: his pathetic father Max (Paul Rogers), senile uncle Sam (Cyril Cusack) and unsavoury brothers Lenny (Ian Holm) and Joey (Terence Rigby). Teddy and Ruth's visit opens up old wounds for the family, bringing up secrets from their murky past.
