Legendary stage and screen star Richard Burton recreates his celebrated stage performance in Sidney Lumet's oft-overlooked film adaptation of the Peter Shaffer play EQUUS in a new Blu-ray edition now available for pre-order.
The official description of the EQUUS Blu-ray is as follows: "Equus (1977) is director Sidney Lumet's adaptation of Peter Shaffer's award-winning hit play about a psychiatrist (Richard Burton, giving an Oscar®-nominated performance) attempting to help a damaged boy (Peter Firth, also Oscar®-nominated) who has committed an unspeakable crime. Before long, the melancholy therapist can't help feeling that the disturbed young man has a stronger grasp on the passionate intensity of life than he does, himself."
EQUUS will be released on Blu-ray on March 11.
