Tom Jones 1963 Criterion Collection
The story is set in 18th century England. When Squire Allworthy (George Devine) comes home after spending some time in London, he’s shocked to find a baby in his bed. After reaching the conclusion that the boy was conceived by his barber and one of the servant girls, he decides to raise the child as his own. The boy is given the name Tom Jones and he turns out to be quite the little rascal who often lands in trouble, especially because of his good looks and way with women. When he falls in love with a beautiful girl, Sophie Western (Susannah York), their relationship is condemned by her father, Squire Western (Griffith), who wants her to marry a more appropriate sort, Allworthy’s dull nephew (David Warner).
Eventually, Tom falls victim to a conspiracy and is banished from his home; as he sets out into the world, Sophie is never far away from his thoughts...
