Spoiled young British aristocrat Tony (James Fox) buys a handsome Georgian townhouse and employs Hugo Barrett (Dirk Bogarde) as his manservant. Initially appearing to settle in well to his new position, Barrett, however, soon begins to exert his influence over his master, subtly ingratiating himself whilst plotting his next move, much to the horror of Tony's fiancee Susan (Wendy Craig). As his influence becomes steadily more pervasive, culminating with the hiring of his 'sister' Vera (Sarah Miles) into a position in the house, Barrett's sexual machinations eventually lead to a complete role-reversal, as he finally attains domination over his master.

A once famous, Shakesperian actor (Albert Finney), who demands to only be called 'Sir', presides over an acting company who are exempt from military service due to age or health. Tom Courtenay plays his dresser, camp and nagging, but the only one who can communicate with 'Sir' (who is struggling with demons from his past and descending into senility) and manages to keep him together; helping with his lines, listening to his worries and reassuring him about his talent. Both men rely on each other and the play 'Sir' has put on, 'King Lear', seems to echo what is going on backstage. The film received 4 Academy Award nominations for Best Picture, Director, Actor (both Finney and Courteney) and Adapted Screenplay. BBFC code: PG
