IAC MOVIE 92 : SELECTION 2       (Library ref no. 83)

Four more of the movies shown in the Dawson Suite at the Novotel, Bradford on Sunday, March 29, 1992, under the banner 'The World Premiere'.

1. IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER
Paul Warner (USA)
In 14th-Century France during the Hundred Years' War, an English knight, Robert Knollys (Trevor Eve), flees the battlefield and falls into an exhausted sleep, only to be haunted in his dreams by the war. Awakened with a start by two French children, he accidentally kills the girl (Brooke Varon) and is forced to kidnap her brother (Michael Garin Turner). A sort of bond grows between captor and captive, the boy even saving the man's life. Photographed by Mark Gordon and with an original music score by Peter R. Melnick, whose feature-film work includes L.A. Story.
Transfer from 16mm film.
(If the synopsis of the film seems familiar, it is because Paul McCudden's screenplay was also made under the title The Tree of Battles by Nicole Bettauer at the University of Southern California.)
