Blu-ray Edition Of EQUUS Starring Richard Burton Now Available For Pre-Order

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."

Of note, in addition to Burton, the film also features Eileen Atkins, Joan Plowright, Colin Blakely, and Jenny Agutter.

EQUUS will be released on Blu-ray on March 11.
