Powerhouse Indicator

This obscure 1972 thriller features excellent performances by Glenda Jackson and Oliver Reed, and is the feature debut of the great director Michael Apted. The wartime homefront drama takes a surprisingly precocious and sensitive view of a bizarre incident that probably happened in real life: a reluctant soldier cross-dresses as a woman to escape his military service. Also starring Brian Deacon; PI’s interview extras this time around are especially entertaining. On Region B Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
