In 1963, the conservative British government was shaken to its foundations by the Profumo Scandal. The central character in this disastrous affair was John Profumo, Britain's minister of war, who had become sexually involved with call-girl Christine Keeler, whose 'sponsor' was high-priced osteopath Dr. Stephen Ward. Fancying himself a dashing international adventurer, Ward had also offered Christine to alleged Soviet spy Eugene Ivanov. Another of Ward's stable, Mandy Rice-Davies, allegedly had slept with numerous British and American luminaries. The whole sordid story, which ended with Ward's suicide and Profumo's public disgrace, was recounted with relish in director Michael Caton-Jones's SCANDAL, which featured John Hurt as Stephen Ward, Joanne Whalley-Kilmer as Christine Keeler, Ian McKellan as Profumo, Bridget Fonda as Mandy Rice-Davies, and Jeroen Krabbe as Ivanov.

I am so glad this film is out in September and I am definitely going to reserve and buy it. I saw this film when it was on video and it was great. Good acting, Joanne Whalley was brilliant as Christine Keeler. In fact all the players were good in this film. John Hurt was good as Stephen but I felt that they could have found someone that looked a bit more like Stephen Ward as I remember when this scandal happened and he looks nothing like him much taller for a start so it was off putting trying to imagine it was him. But never the less it was a good film and I cant wait to receive it.
