One of the most unsettling films in the Peter Sellers canon, Hoffman sees the actor in a sinister starring role as a bachelor who obsesses over his secretary Miss Smith (Sinead Cusack, Tam Lin, Revenge). Hoffman discovers Miss Smith's boyfriend (Jeremy Bulloch, The Spy Who Loved Me) has been fiddling the books at work, and blackmails her into spending a week with him. Their time together reveals Hoffman's tragic, lonely existence.

Alvin Rakoff (Death Ship) directs a film which is by turns amusing, poignant and uneasy, and which boasts a central performance so uncomfortable and revealing that its star tried to have the film's negative destroyed. Hoffman makes its worldwide debut on Blu-ray.

Members based in EU Countries
Powerhouse Films now no longer remove UK Vat from Checkout for customers based in EU

They now have done IOSS registration apparently
So you order will include EU Vat when purchasing
The price will change at checkout depending on what the EU Vate rate is for your EU country
Example Rep of Ireland price before shipping cost is added changes from £15.99 to £16.40 as the Vate rate in Ireland is 23%

There is an issues sometimes with powerhouse films website when you goto shipping section it can default the shipping country to UK sometimes
Doulble check your address details has correct EU country before you goto payment section and it lists the correct price for your EU country
You do this by clicking change Ship To and make sure it don't list United Kingdom

It will though depend on if postal carrier in EU country can process IOSS parcels some EU countries have issues doing this and some don't

Also Powerhouse Films Website will be launching a sale on Friday October 22
