Worldwide first on Blu-ray!

Patrick Bergin, Iain Glen and Richard E. Grant star in this biographical drama, depicting the journey of Richard Francis Burton and John Hanning Speke through the Nile River in the 1850s.

Directed by Bob Rafelson, one of the key figures in the New Hollywood movement of the 1970s, and based on the novel Burton and Speke by William Harrison.

In the 1850’s, two British officers, Capt. Richard Burton and Lt. John Speke, set out on a spectacular adventure to discover the source of the Nile. As the difficult journey takes its toll, Burton and Speke forge a strong bond. A bond that one will eventually betray.

“The exploits of Sir Richard Francis Burton make Lawrence of Arabia look like a tourist.” – Newsweek
