Deep End

Legally unavailable for decades, Jerzy Skolimowski’s 1970 darkly comic and utterly compelling portrait of Britain in a era of uncertainty makes its long overdue return.

Newly employed at a run-down London swimming baths, Mike (John Moulder-Brown) obsesses after his sassy and self-assured co-worker (Jane Asher) whilst collecting tips for the special services he is expected to perform for clients (including the superb Diana Dors). Darkly comic and utterly compelling, this portrait of Britain in a era of uncertainty makes its long overdue return to the screen in a new digital restoration with extensive bonus features.
