The Offence - The Masters of Cinema Series Film Poster


Crime drama directed by Sidney Lumet. Sean Connery stars as Detective Sergeant Johnson, a brutal policeman who has seen too much action and misery in his past twenty years of service. In the claustrophobic atmosphere of the interrogation room, Johnson finally snaps when questioning a suspected rapist called Kenneth Baxter (Ian Bannen), who he is convinced is guilty. But as he becomes more obsessed with Baxter's guilt and his suppressed emotions are unleashed, the detective finds himself subtly changing places with the offender as notions of truth, good and evil are challenged.
