    LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (Digitally Restored Director’s Cut) – Certificate PG

    50th anniversary cinema, DVD & BlueRay re-release

    David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia is a masterpiece. Over the years the film was heavily cut, but in 1988 a reconstruction of the film was undertaken. Lean and original editor Anne V. Coates then worked on the film to create his Director’s Cut - which has now been digitally restored.

    One of the screen's grandest epics the film recounts the true life experiences of T.E. Lawrence, better known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia. A young, idealistic British officer in WWI, Lawrence (Peter O'Toole) is assigned to the camp of Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness), an Arab tribal chieftain and leader in a revolt against the Turks.
