WIN Dangerous Edge: A Life of Graham Greene
British actor Sir Derek Jacobi narrates this portrait of author Graham Greene: a British spy, doubting Catholic, and manic-depressive who wrote critically acclaimed best-sellers including The Quiet American, Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair and The Third Man.
Weaving Greene’s novels and movies into the story of his life, Dangerous Edge reveals an extraordinary and enigmatic man who traveled the globe to escape the boredom of ordinary existence.
After Greene’s death in 1991, Paul Gray wrote in TIME Magazine, No serious writer of the twentieth century has more thoroughly influenced the public imagination than Graham Greene. And his influence continues.
Featuring actor Bill Nighy as the voice of Greene other participants include novelists John Mortimer, John Le Carré and Shirley Hazzard, psychiatry expert Dr. Kay Jamison, former CIA operative and author Frederick Hitz, and Greene’s daughter Caroline Bourget.
The documentary uses Graham Greene’s own words from his books and recordings, as well as photographs and clips from his films, to reveal the life of one of the great writers of the twentieth century.
