Genre: Drama

Luis Buñuel's rarely-seen gem THE YOUNG ONE takes his oft-expressed themes of morality and sexual perversity and relocates them to the South of the United States. Evvie is a young girl on the brink of womanhood who lives with her grandfather, Pee-Wee on a rural property presided over by the gamekeeper, Miller. Pee-Wee dies suddenly, leaving Evvie in Miller's care: an unwilling object of his sexual affections. When Traver, a black musician from the North who has been falsely accused of raping a white woman, happens upon Evvie, he is compelled to help her escape Miller's lecherous control.

Buñuel's first English-language film is a triumph of thematic subtleties and impeccable style.

Special Features
  • The Young One: Buñuel's neglected masterpiece: an essay by Jonathan Rosenbaum, film critic for the Chicago Reader (1987–2007) and author of several books, most recently Discovering Orson Welles (2007)
