The True Story of the Scandal That Shocked the World From the Oscar Nominated Director of WOMEN IN LOVE and ALTERED STATES At the close of the 19th Century, French Army Captain Alfred Dreyfus was convicted of treason, stripped of his rank in a humiliating ceremony and sentenced to life imprisonment on Devils Island. But upon further investigation by Colonel Georges Picquart (a powerful performance by Oscar-winner Richard Dreyfuss), a high-level conspiracy was uncovered that may have condemned an innocent man. For the next decade, Picquart would risk his career and his life to expose the truth behind The Dreyfus Affair, the shocking saga of anti-Semitism and treason that divided France, set the stage for the First World War and became one of the most notorious cases of criminal injustice in history. Oliver Reed (GLADIATOR, THE THREE MUSKETEERS) and Peter Firth (EQUUS, THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER) co-star in this acclaimed drama directed by Ken Russell and co-produced by Richard Dreyfuss that remains a startling story of racism, corruption and one man's relentless pursuit of honor.moreless
