Michael Radford United Kingdom, 1987

Richmond Hill's rating of the film White Mischief

A rather inert and half-hearted affair which indifferently paws, rather than getting stuck in to, the beastly behaviour of dastardly British colonials whooping-it up in wartime Kenya. It all fails to take fire despite the assembled cast and photogenic locale. Sarah Miles just about captures the right tone with a watery-eyed detachment.
