Product Overview

Lovely, headstrong Rosy (Sarah Miles) cannot forsake her passionate romance with the handsome British officer (Christopher Jones). Yet there is a greater love--the devotion of her reserved schoolteacher husband Charles (Robert Mitchum), who stands by Rosy when her illicit affair leads to a charge of treason. Two honored alumni of Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago director David Lean and screenwriter Robert Bolt frame this brooding tale within the expansive beaches, craggy cliffs and heathered hills of Ireland's Dingle Peninsula. Freddie Young's lush cinematography and John Mills' memorable portrayal of a town simpleton won Academy Awards. The remarkable movie containing them casts a haunting spell.

Editors Note
Note David Lean's epic tale of forbidden love, set during the Irish Rebellion of 1916 tells the story of Charles Shaughnessy (Robert Mitchum), a kind and gentle widower, who falls in love with and marries the much younger Rosy (Sarah Miles). On her wedding night, however, Rosy finds that her new husband does not make her romantic dreams come true. When a handsome young Major arrives to take over England's occupying forces, he and Rosy feel an immediate sexual attraction to each other. Unable to resist temptation despite the dangers, the two begin a passionate affair. But when someone betrays the Irish rebels to the British authorities, the whole town suspects Rosy. They're determined to make her pay... and it doesn't matter whether or not she's innocent. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Actress--Sarah Miles. Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor--John Mills, Best Cinematography.

New York Times "[A] marvel of pinpoint resolution and stable, saturated color." 02/07/2006 p.E4
Premiere 4 stars out of 4 -- "[A] cinematic expression of romance against a harsh backdrop of nature, politics, and human cruelty....RYAN's picture-perfect style of filmmaking is a pleasure to revisit." 04/01/2006 p.102

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review The very first shot of David Lean's "Ryan's Daughter" shows us a tiny speck of a figure running along the ridge of an enormous cliff. Alas, this shot introduces the tone of the film all too well; Lean's characters, well written and well acted, are finally dwarfed by his excessive scale.Not every subject is suited to the epic treatment, to the vast landscapes and towering clouds and portentous musical scores, of the recent Lean style. "Dr. Zhivago" could support it because the Russian revolution was appropriate to the heroic scale. But a simple little love triangle on the Southwest coast of Ireland simply can't bear the weight of Lean's overachieving.
