The Human Stain, DVD 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?
