Our 2017 LGBT month film is a classic taboo-breaking crime drama. A prominent barrister, at no small risk to himself, takes on blackmailers who target gay men. A landmark film for LGBT rights in Britain, Victim is credited with having helped create the climate for the decriminalisation of homosexuality 50 years ago.
Dirk Bogarde received a highly deserved BAFTA nomination for his performance.
‘Drum-tight thriller with a neat twist in the tail.’ (Peter Bradshaw, Guardian).
