Informed Consent: 40th anniversary of Michael Powell's Age of Consent

Posted by Stuart George in Cinema | Leave a comment

Although I studied literature, I have always been more enthusiastic about cinema than theatre and did film studies as part of my degree.

My favourite auteur is Michael Powell. For me, he is Britain’s greatest filmmaker.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of his penultimate film Age of Consent - not one of his great films, admittedly, but of interest for its cast (especially a young Helen Mirren) and its problems with the censors.

I have written a short article about this for the independent UK film magazine Little White Lies. It can be seen here.
