The Hill

Prestigious British actors Sean Connery, Roy Kinnear, Ian Bannen and Harry Andrews star in this intimate character drama directed by Sidney Lumet. With a stellar script that grippingly explores power dynamics, and stunning black-and-white photography from UK-born Oswald Morris that deservedly won the BAFTA for Best British Cinematography in 1966, this is a thrilling must-see.





Five British soldiers, including Joe Roberts (Sean Connery) and Monty Bartlett (Roy Kinnear), are sent to a military prison in the Libyan Desert where they endure brutal and sadistic treatment from Staff Sergeant Williams (Ian Hendry). While Staff Sergeant Harris (Ian Bannen) empathises with the new detainees, he’s powerless to stop his tyrannical and ruthless colleague.
