The Grotesque Film Poster


Eco-friendly popster Sting stars as a butler who gradually comes to dominate his master Alan Bates in this tongue-in-cheek, black comedy. Sir Hugo Coal (Bates) is already in decline when Fledge (Sting) and his wife arrive as the new servants. Sir Hugo neglects his American wife (Theresa Russell) and is obsessed with his dinosaur skeleton. Fledge manipulates situations and personalities in order to gain control of the household, but ultimately there can be only one master.
