The Draughtsman's Contract, DVD DVD



Peter Greenaway's highly acclaimed first feature was filmed in the beautiful house and gardens of Groombridge near Tunbridge Wells.

The drama is set in the late seventeenth century and the plot is one of intrigue between the sexes.

Successful artist Mr Neville (Anthony Higgins) is commissioned by Mrs Herbert (Janet Suzman) to draw up her late husband's estate.

Part of the contract includes the exchange of sexual favours between the two, but sexual intrigue soon turns to murder.
