Synopsis

Philip Carey, an English medical student, abandons his artistic aspirations when he falls for Mildred Rogers, a callous and manipulative waitress. Despite Mildred’s abuse, Philip becomes completely obsessed with her as she walks into and out of his life.

Our take

A masochistic pre-Code melodrama about a sensitive artist infatuated with a manipulative waitress, Of Human Bondage stars a joyfully sneering Bette Davis in the role that ignited her career. This adaption of W. Somerset Maugham’s masterpiece explores the hopelessly slavish devotions of love.
