VOICE OVER (DVD + Blu-ray)
A Film by Christopher Monger
THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.
'Fats' Bannerman is enjoying success as the writer and presenter of Thus Engaged a romantic radio serial about the lives and loves of a Regency heroine. But when grim reality violently intrudes into Fats' life, his frail fantasies become unbalanced and his ability to separate fact from fiction breaks down, with devastating consequences.
Featuring a compelling central performance from the great British screen actor Ian McNeice, this controversial film from award-wining Hollywood director Christopher Monger caused a sensation upon its original release.
