The Human Stain, DVD



Director Robert Benton's drama based on the Philip Roth novel set during the Clinton era of the 1990s.

Esteemed college professor Coleman Silk (Anthony Hopkins) has a secret.

A 50-year-old secret that he has kept hidden from everyone - including his wife and children.

After he makes an apparent racial comment about a pair of students, his career heads downwards and the scandal lingers.

Meanwhile, writer Nathan Zuckerman (Gary Sinise) is researching a biography of Silk, getting ever closer to discovering Silk's secret and also about to uncover his affair with a young married janitor (Nicole Kidman) at the college.

Can Silk save his career and prevent the closely-guarded truth of his life from being revealed?
