Another Country is a 1984 British romantic historical drama written by Julian Mitchell, adapted from his play of the same name. Directed by Marek Kanievska, the film stars Rupert Everett and Colin Firth. The film is loosely based on the life of the spy and double agent Guy Burgess, Guy Bennett in the film. It explores his homosexuality and exposure to Marxism, while examining the hypocrisy and snobbery of the English public school system. Set in the 1930s, Guy Bennett (Rupert Everett) and Tommy Judd (Colin Firth) are friends because they are both outsiders in their own ways. Bennett is openly gay, Judd is a Marxist. The film's epilogue reports that Bennett defected to Russia later in his life, after having been a spy for the Soviet Union. Judd died fighting for the Socialists in the Spanish Civil War.
