The Offence (1972) directed by  Sidney Lumet starring Sean Connery

The Offence (1972) (DVD) directed by Sidney Lumet starring Sean Connery, Trevor Howard, Vivien Merchant, Ian Bannen.  A tightly filmed, tense look at guilt and innocence, perversion and evil, extraordinary and powerful performances by all the actors characterise offer up an intense view of the sordid and the tormented.  Truly a MUST SEE.
