Buxton Film Festival

Buxton Film presents

1984 (15)

12 Apr 2017




Sir John Hurt – one of our great film actors was born in Derbyshire, in the mining village of Shirebrook near Chesterfield. In choosing a film by which to remember him at this Festival dozens came to mind. In the end this necessarily chilling adaptation of Orwell’s masterpiece – with Hurt as Winston Smith and Richard Burton as O’Brien virtually chose itself.
