Brian Desmond Hurst adapts and directs JM Synge's legendary comedy in what was to be the final film of a highly successful career stretching back to the mid-1930s. Featuring stunning cinematography of County Kerry by multiple Oscar-winner Geoffrey Unsworth and a memorable soundtrack from influential composer Seán Ó Riada, The Playboy of the Western World stars Siobhán McKenna and Gary Raymond alongside a host of players from Dublin's Abbey Theatre. It is featured here as a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.

Weary and dishevelled, Christy Mahon stumbles into a remote inn on the Irish coast and tells anyone who'll listen how he's murdered his tyrannous father with a spade. As he enthrals the locals and charms the girls, his tale growing in its telling... until the day Christy's father turns up – and he's not as dead as expected!
