The Gamekeeper

The Gamekeeper

Very rarely seen on the big screen, this TV film from a script by Barry Hines (Kes) chronicles a year in the life of a gamekeeper working on an aristocrat's estate in the north of England. Exploring his relationships with his boss, his family, his dog and the land itself, the film is a supremely subtle, deftly ironic study in conflicting allegiances.
