Product description

Product Description

"Work like this doesn't come along every day. Against the Law stands as a brilliant, important, must-see piece."
The Guardian

Daniel Mays stars in this powerful dramatisation of the Montagu Trial one of the most sensational and controversial court cases of the 1950s and the catalyst for a campaign that paved the way for the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain.

Against the Law follows the affair between celebrated Fleet Street journalist Peter Wildeblood and serviceman Eddy McNally the exposure of which led to public vilification and prison sentences for Wildeblood and his friends Michael Pitt-Rivers and Lord Montagu of Beaulieu. Enduring a year-long incarceration in which he was encouraged to undergo aversion therapy to alter his sexual orientation, Wildeblood emerged with a determination to challenge the draconian laws that shattered the lives of generations of gay men.

Also starring Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss and scripted by BAFTA-nominated Brian Fillis, this film is based on Wildeblood's bestselling autobiography and features moving interviews with gay men who recall their own experiences during the 1950s.
