British label, Powerhouse Films, is releasing Director Paul Greengrass’ Resurrected (1989) on a 4K restoration Blu-ray edition. Stars Tom Bell, Rita Tushingham, David Thewlis.
The extraordinary feature film debut from Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, United 93) is a disturbing and powerful true story of a British soldier (David Thewlis -- Naked) injured and lost during the 1980s Falklands conflict. Presumed dead, he’s given full military honors; but on returning he’s treated with distrust and shame, and accused of desertion.
Also featuring excellent performances from Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey, Doctor Zhivago) and Tom Bell (The L-Shaped Room, The Krays), Resurrected is an intense and provocative drama, a powerful cry against institutional violence and political indifference.
