Joseph Losey 1970, UK, 116 mins.

With Julie Christie, Alan Bates, Michael Redgrave, Dominic Guard

A first-class film about love and childhood. Leo Colston, staying for the summer at the grand house of a schoolfriend -- in the film this is Melton Hall (Melton Constable) -- is asked by the beautiful daughter of the house to pass written messages to her lover, a farmer on the estate. Complications arise, not least for the innocent go-between, whom we see in later life still trying to understand the consequences of his fateful summer of fifty years before.
