The closing night of this year’s Mardi Gras Film Festival will feature a screening of Richard Laxton’s An Englishman in New York.
In this long-awaited sequel to The Naked Civil Servant, John Hurt returns with his unparalleled portrait of Quentin Crisp.
This legendary tale of Britain’s most notorious homosexual-turned-American-socialite reprises the Crisp chronicle as an older fey gentleman overwhelmed by a fast-moving culture of gay and lesbian activism, political correctness and the horror of AIDS. Bursting with Crisp quips, powerful performances and a host of impressive cameos, this festival highlight is a must for any queer culture aficionado.

info: Screens February 26 at 7.30pm at the Ritz Randwick. To find out more visit or You can also download a copy of the guide from
