Product Description:

When an auditing clerk is let go for consistently claiming he "prefers not to" perform his duties, though he still shows up at work. His infuriated and frustrated boss is ultimately forced to put him in an asylum. Based on the 1853 short story "Bartleby the Scrivener" by Herman Melville.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Updated to 1970s London, this faithful adaptation of Herman Melville's classic follows a young accounting clerk rebelling against his employer by responding to demands to do work by saying, "I prefer not to." This is carried on ad absurdum until the office is in chaos because the other employees must do Bartleby's work. His boss is unable to fire or help him and eventually has him placed in a mental hospital. Paul Scofield (A Man for All Seasons), John McEnery (The Duellists) and Thorley Walters (TV's "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy") star in this impeccably mounted study of employment, insanity, and the rigors of everyday life from one of literature's most acclaimed geniuses.
