Food for the soul.
5 November 1999 | by Dr.Gonzo-2See all my reviews

In this age of megabudgets, digital wizardry, and mindnumbingly bad plots, A Feast at Midnight stands out as a refreshing alternative.

The story is one that anyone can relate to whether or not you ever attended a British public school. Friendship, love, and the desire to break out of "establishment" boundaries make this film so much fun to watch for children and adults. It's also nice to see Christopher Lee playing a charming villain.
