Peter (O'Toole) the Great
New Zealand | 2008 | Toa Fraser
Peter O’Toole and Sam Neill (both giving Oscar-worthy performances) star in this delightful film version of Lord Dunsany’s cult fantasy novel. Set in Edwardian England, this odd, one-of-a-kind movie chronicles how a lecture on the transmigration of souls, and a rare Hungarian wine, help effect a thaw in the chilly relationship between a dutiful son and his embittered father. And dog lovers absolutely shouldn’t miss it. Blu-ray. 100 min.
