The Servant – 4K Unboxing

From StudioCanal comes one of the most acclaimed British films of the 1960s, available now in a glorious 4K UHD edition.

Sexual tensions and class conflicts run high in must-see classic The Servant with BAFTA-winning performances from Dirk Bogarde and James Fox. Marking the first of three collaborations between director Joseph Losey and celebrated playwright Harold Pinter, The Servant follows sly and seductive manservant Barrett (Bogarde) as he worms his way in to the affections of foppish aristocrat Tony (Fox).  

Barrett’s awe-inspiring efficiency cleverly masks his true intentions, ultimately giving way to a suspicious and insidious control where the roles of master and servant are reversed. Adapted from Robin Maugham’s short story and with stunning black & white photography from cinematographer Douglas Slocombe, The Servant is a thrilling and ingenious British classic that’s not to be missed.
