Movie Summary

Director:
Anthony Page
Released:
1968
Rating:
R

Inadmissible Evidence is a black and white film from 1968 based on John Osborne's play of the same name. The film is about London solicitor Bill Maitland (Nicol Williamson) in a BAFTA nominated performance, whose life is falling apart personally and professionally. At home Maitland is unsatisfied with the coldness of his wife, Anna (Eleanor Fazan), the insolence of his daughter, Jane (Ingrid Brett), and the conventionality of his son, Peter (Stephen Martin). He turns to his mistress Liz Eaves (Jill Bennett) to relieve the boredom, but finds she cannot save him. At work, his fellow solicitors find his work shoddy and inefficient. He is unable to help his clients, who include Mrs. Garnsey (Isabel Dean), a distressed woman seeking a divorce, and Maples (John Normington), a homosexual arrested for public indecency. Trapped in a boring and sometimes tortuous existence, Bill tries to find a way out. Inadmissible Evidence is a precise and evocative tale of failure and ennui in the life of a middle-aged man.
