Movie Info

Tom Conti stars as a drunken Scottish poet who preys upon the lasses of a New England college town by swooning over them with poetry and bedding them with a passion. He'd probably have continued in such fashion for who knows how long, were in not for his encounter with a lovely homespun gal (Kelly McGillis), who sets his head spinning in a lovesick swirl and forces him to get his life on track.

Very much in the British tradition of literary quality, this intimate, intelligent film is extremely well acted by Tom Conti in an Oscar-nominated performance.
