From Lindsay Anderson, the acclaimed director of This Sporting Life, If…., O Lucky Man!, In Celebration and The Whales of August, comes this savage satire starring the great Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, The Raging Moon). Welcome to Britannia Hospital, an esteemed English institution marking its gala anniversary with a visit by the Queen Mother herself. But when investigative reporter Mick Travis (McDowell) arrives to cover the celebration, he finds the hospital under siege by striking workers, ruthless unions, violent demonstrators, racist aristocrats, an African cannibal dictator and sinister human experiments financed by the Japanese. Can Mick survive one very strange day in these unhealthy halls or is the entire British Empire in critical condition? Britannia Hospital is the final film in the acclaimed Mick Travis trilogy starring McDowell, directed by Anderson and written by David Sherwin. Alan Bates (Women in Love), Robbie Coltrane (Nuns on the Run), Richard Griffiths (Withnail & I), Mark Hamill (Star Wars) and Joan Plowright (Enchanted April) lead an eclectic all-star cast in this biting black comedy that features original music by Alan Price.
