Product description

Product Description

BFI Flipside presents

PRIVATE ROAD (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Barney Platts-Mills

THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.

When Peter, a handsome author pausing from finishing his first novel (and played by Bruce Robinson, director and star of Withnail & I), shacks up with sugar-sweet receptionist, Ann (Susan Penhaligon), they spend their days in pursuit of youthful happiness. Soon, however, they are forced to choose between domestic conformity and individual fulfilment.

Barney Platts-Mills' stylish and compelling follow-up to the critically acclaimed Bronco Bullfrog relocates the youthful struggle for freedom to 1970s Boho London, suburban Surrey and rural Scotland. The film is presented here in a stunning new HD transfer
