Double bill of biographical dramas. In 'Gandhi' (1982), Richard Attenborough directs the story of Mahatma Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) from his beginnings as a young Indian lawyer to his triumph as a revolutionary leader whose philosophy of non-violent protest helped gain India its independence. 'Lawrence of Arabia' (1962), David Lean's biopic, stars Peter O'Toole as T.E.
Lawrence, the Oxford-educated British Army officer who aided the Arabs in their revolt against the Turks.
Teaming up with Sherif Ali (Omar Sharif), Lawrence attempts to cross an inhospitable desert in order to join two separate Arab tribes together as a single fighting force, with the main goal of preventing the subjection of the Arabs to British colonial rule.
