From Ken Follett’s best-selling novel comes Eye of the Needle, a heart-pounding espionage turned romantic-thriller set in the final days of World War II. Donald Sutherland (M*A*S*H, Don’t Look Now) portrays Henry Faber, a nefarious German spy alongside Kate Nelligan (The Prince of Tides) as Lucy Rose, a stoic English woman caring for her wounded husband (Christopher Cazenove, TV’s Dynasty) on a remote Scottish isle. Directed by Richard Marquand (Jagged Edge, Return of the Jedi), Eye of the Needle features a lush score by the renowned Miklós Rózsa (Ben-Hur).

As embodied by Alan Bates, Butley falls back on the surgically precise wit and savage eloquence that helped put him in his current circumstances in the first place. The blitzkrieg of vitriolic commentary with which Butley engages lovers, students, rivals, and allies, all with equal ferocity, becomes a glass bottom boat illuminating the churning depths of his bankrupted soul. Acclaimed playwright Harold Pinter, in what Time Magazine hailed as “a quite superior directorial debut,” turns author Simon Gray’s single-set, dialogue driven stage play into an irresistible dynamic visual experience that tracks Bates’ hilarious and fearless performance with cunning precision.

Bates and an expert supporting cast, including Oscar® winner Jessica Tandy (Driving Miss Daisy), joust with a sly, self-referencing wit and an unselfconscious exuberance that is breathtaking. With every verbal parry and valedictory flourish of wordplay, Butley’s life becomes more of an inescapable bear trap of thwarted ambition, clandestine affection, and squandered brilliance.
