John Hurt takes the title role in this study of a man's journey to self-discovery in the frozen isolation of Antarctica. Co-starring Hayley Mills and Dudley Sutton, with a script from award-winning writer Anthony Shaffer and wildlife sequences shot by multi-award-winning filmmaker Arne Sucksdorff, Mr. Forbush and the Penguins is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements. Life for Richard Forbush, brilliant biology student and conceited philanderer, is one long round of eat, drink and be merry. But his decision to accept a six-month research post in the Antarctic, making the first detailed study of a penguin colony, changes all that... Living in Shackleton's derelict hut, Forbush is alone at the frozen edge of the world, his only links to civilisation a two-way radio and letters to his elusive, would-be girlfriend, Tara, in London. Through an often ferocious winter in the company of the penguins, he grows increasingly attached to his hardy, endearing subjects - learning profound lessons in endurance and humility. SPECIAL FEATURES: [] 41-minute music suite of Oscar-winning composer John Addison's original score [] Image gallery [] Promotional material PDF
