Line of Beauty, The


UK 2006,
Dir. Saul Dibb
Genres: Drama / Gay Cinema

Topics: Period 1980s.


Aroview: BBC serial adaptation of Alan Hollinghurst's Booker award-winning novel about a young, gay man who gains entree to an upper class milieu during the height of the Thatcherite '80s. Spread over a time period of four years this drama plunges headfirst into the saturated hedonism of the time, tragically tinged by the threat of the Aids onslaught. A schizophrenically beguiling romp through a not-so-distant past from the POV of an impressionable adolescent.
