Shakespeare Wallah (Blu-ray)
Directed by James Ivory

A company of nomadic actors travel across India performing Shakespeare, during the early days of post-colonial rule. When young troupe member Lizzie (Felicity Kendal) falls in love with a local playboy Sanju (Shashi Kapoor), the pair must overcome cultural differences and the scheming of fierce Indian film actress and rival for Sanju's affections Manjula (Madhur Jaffrey).

Plaintive and haunting, Shakespeare Wallah, was Merchant Ivory's first international success. Shot by Satyajit Ray's cameraman, Subrata Mitra and scored by Ray himself the film is a delicate love story that sets the tone for so many of the partnership's future collaborations. Now newly restored in 2K, it remains a beguiling and multi-layered cinematic landmark.
