Tom Jones!

Tom Jones!

Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Director (Tony Richardson), Best Adapted Screenplay (John Osbourne) and Best Picture, this raucous and innovative adaptation of Henry Fielding's classic novel is directed with a real sense of adventure. John Osbourne captures the spirit of the novel in his sophisticated screenplay and Albert Finney gives a dashing OscarĀ® nominated performance as the much sought-after Tom Jones, enjoying marvellous support from Joan Greenwood as Lady Bellaston and Susannah York as the wellborn Sophie Western.

The BFI is proud to showcase the new 4K digital restorations of not just the theatrical cut but of Tony Richardson's preferred 1989 director's cut, both of which were supervised by director of photography Walter Lassally.

First released: Monday 20th August 2018
