Another Country, a 1984 film based on Julian Mitchell's 1981 play of the same name, is a fictionalized account of the early life of British double-agent Guy Burgess. In the film, Burgess is main character Guy Bennett (Rupert Everett). In the 1930s, Guy is openly homosexual at his all-boys school, and as a result of his nonconformity, his closest friend is Tommy Judd (Colin Firth), whose Marxist opinions also make him an outsider. Guy wants to become a prefect at his school, while Tommy feels that the prefect system is oppressive to the other students. One prefect in particular is Fowler (Tristan Oliver), who uses his high status to abuse and order around other students. Meanwhile, when a professor catches two young boys in a romantic embrace, rumors spread through the school, and one of the boys commits suicide. This fuels Fowler's desire to keep Guy from becoming a prefect. Despite the homophobic attitude of the school, Guy begins a secret relationship with James Harcourt (Cary Elwes). However, in a society where appearances are everything, Guy's two greatest desires have him trapped, and choosing high status means sacrificing personal happiness.moreless
