The Adapting Highsmith film season at Quad in Derby continues with screenings of Deep Water (15) on August 21, 24 and 25.

Deep Water (Eaux Profondes) from 1981 is a French film directed by Michel Deville in a dark humoured version of Patricia Highsmith’s 1957 novel.

Middle aged perfumer Vic Allen lives on Jersey with his young wife Melanie and their daughter Marion.

Melanie embarks on a string of extra-marital flirtations, all with her husband’s apparent approval, but mild-mannered, chess-playing Vic soon has murder on his mind.
