Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

Mister Johnson
Directed by Bruce Beresford
Passport Entertainment 04/91 DVD/VHS Feature Film
PG-13

A richly-nuanced and well-acted screen adaptation of Joyce Cary's 1939 novel, set in colonial British West Africa during the 1920s. The lead character is a mission-educated clerk who, having caught a taste of western ways, cannot control his acquisitive nature. The film presents an engaging and deeply moral examination of cross-cultural clashes.
