About A Day In The Death Of Joe Egg

Based on the successful play by writer Peter Nichols (Georgy Girl, The National Health), the focus of this dark comedy-drama is the struggle of a British couple to cope with the day-to-day strain of caring for their ten-year-old disabled daughter, Jo. Critically acclaimed actor Alan Bates is tremendous as the father, who recounts the outlines of the couple's life before and since Jo's birth and diagnosis with cerebral palsy in comic asides, which lighten, but never diminish, the delicate handling of this difficult subject matter. As they confront the collapse of their marriage, the couple debates the alternatives for their daughter. Directed by Peter Medak, and starring a small but exceptional cast including Janet Suzman, Joan Hickson and Peter Bowles. Newly remastered.
