Age of Consent

I didn't know anything about this film besides the facts that this was the first leading role for Helen Mirren and the final feature film directed by Michael Powell. Found it engaging and beautiful. Mirren demonstrates why she'll be working consistently for the next 50 years. And for those who care, there's a very talented Jack Russell and Mirren is quite nude throughout.

Watched the Indicator Blu-ray which is a great package and full of extras.
