Jerzy Skolimowski writes and directs this comedy drama exploring the dangers of unrequited love. After leaving school, 15-year-old Mike (John Moulder-Brown) goes to work in a bathhouse where he meets and falls for fellow employee Susan (Jane Asher) who is ten years his senior. Mike is already envious of Susan's young fiancé Chris (Christopher Sanford) but the situation intensifies when he finds out that she is also having an affair. Driven mad by jealousy, Mike harrasses Susan, hoping that he will win her over. When they finally do get together, however, the consequences are disastrous.

Newly employed at a run-down London swimming baths, Mike (John Moulder-Brown) obsesses after his sassy and self-assured co-worker (Jane Asher) whilst collecting tips for the special services he is expected to perform for clients (including the superb Diana Dors). Darkly comic and utterly compelling, this portrait of Britain in an era of uncertainty is available here fully remastered with extensive extras, including a rare short film with Jane Asher. Special features Starting Out: The Making of Jerzy Skolimowski's Deep End (2011, 74 mins): a comprehensive new feature-length documentary Deep End: The Deleted Scenes (2011, 12 mins): short documentary exploring the scenes that never made the grade Original theatrical trailer Careless Love (Francine Winham, 1976, 10 mins): rare and disturbing tale in which a woman (Jane Asher) takes drastic action to keep the affections of the man she loves
