The Ploughman's Lunch

1984 R

Writer James Penfield (Jonathan Pryce) mixes politics with personal gain in this drama. In order to get the information he needs to write a book comparing the Falklands war with the 1956 Suez crisis, Penfield manipulates documentary filmmaker Susan (Charlie Dore) and her political-expert mom. Certain he's got the upper hand, Penfield is really a pawn in a scheme far more shady than the one he's trying to perpetrate. Tim Curry co-stars.
