See this film: Age of Consent at the MFA

Video slightly NSFW

Nine years after nearly ending his extraordinary film career with his brilliant, disturbing, and reviled Peeping Tom (1960), Michael Powell returned to the screen with a bit of voyeurism that was easier on the eyes. Age Of Consent (1969), which would prove to be his last feature, stars James Mason as an aging artist who retires to an Australian island to seek inspiration and finds it the form of a nubile, often-nude beauty played by a 20-something Helen Mirren. It screens Friday, August 12 at 7:45 pm, Saturday, August 13 at 11 am, and Sunday, August 14 at 3 pm at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave, Boston | $11; $9 students, seniors | 617.369.3907 or
