Based on Herman Melville's novella of naval life in the late 18th century, Billy Budd is a gripping reflection on good and evil, innocence and corruption. Director Michael Grandage scrupulously recreates the claustrophobic environment about HMS Indomitable, the setting for fatal tensions between the young sailor Billy Budd, the thoughtful Captain Vere and the malevolent master at arms John Claggart.
