Cul-De-Sac is a psychological thriller about two criminals who take a married couple hostage in their own home. The film opens with the arrival of two gangsters, Dicky (Lionel Stander) and Albie (Jack MacGowran), pushing their car onto the beach of a remote island with a castle. Albie is seriously injured and unable to leave the car, so Dicky goes to take refuge in the castle and await rescue by their gang boss. The castle is home to the eccentric and neurotic George (Donald Pleasence), who is a retired businessman, and his young and beautiful Wife, Teresa (Fran''oise Dorl''ac). Upon encountering the couple in the house, Dicky threatens them and takes them hostage. After they bring Albie up to the castle, Albie dies and the others bury him. The three then get drunk and spend the night in deep conversation. The following day, Dicky needs to pose as a butler to deceive visitors who come to make a house call on George and Teresa. Throughout Dicky's hold-up of the castle, the relationship between him, George, and Teresa takes many darkly humorous turns.moreless
