A mature, sophis­ti­cat­ed erot­i­ca com­bin­ing lust with under­tones of psy­cho­log­i­cal ter­ror. Sarah Miles and Kris Kristofferson are a hot roman­tic team!” —Bruce Williamson, Playboy
Obsession and fate col­lide in one of the most con­tro­ver­sial and provoca­tive films ever made. English wid­ow Anne Osborne (Sarah Miles, Ryan’s Daughter) lives by the sea with her young son, Jonathan. The arrival of a rugged American sailor, Jim (Trouble In Mind’s Kris Kristofferson), brings Anne the joy and sen­su­al ful­fill­ment she thought had gone forever, but her son is dis­turbed by this new intrud­er and joins a per­verse group of fel­low stu­dents led by the charis­mat­ic Chief. With its dis­turbing shock end­ing and frank love sce­nes, this styl­ish adap­ta­tion of the nov­el by leg­endary writer Yukio Mishima has become a time­less clas­sic, with sharp direc­tion by Lewis John Carlino (The Great Santini), pow­er­house per­for­mances, exquis­ite cin­e­matog­ra­phy by the leg­endary Douglas Slocombe (Raiders Of The Lost Ark) and a haunt­ing score by Johnny Mandel (M*A*S*H). Beautiful, eerie and erotic, this spell­binder has been restored in high def­i­n­i­tion from archival ele­ments to its orig­i­nal widescreen glo­ry.

Fans and col­lec­tors can pre-order this Blu-ray today through ShoutFactoryStore.com
