In rural Wiltshire at the end of the 17th century, Mrs Herbert (Janet Suzman) hires artist Mr Neville (Anthony Higgins) to produce a series of drawings of her country house as a gift for her inattentive husband, to be carried out while he is away on business.

Their contract requires Mrs Herbert’s sexual compliance to the draughtsman, an arrangement that she begins to question as his sexual advances become increasingly aggressive.

With extravagant costumes, elegantly barbed dialogue, visuals influenced by Caravaggio, Vermeer and Rembrandt and with Michael Nyman’s Purcell-inspired score permeating throughout, THE DRAUGHTSMAN’S CONTRACT is a work of cinematic art unlike anything seen before.
