Can anyone help me please to find a free link for the movie A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, by James Joyce, and its 1977 edition.

We are supposed to have exam on it soon and all the links which I've found aren't free.

I wasn't able to find a free link for viewing the film A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The one link that I found apparently was no longer active. You can find a few copies for sale at amazon.com, however. The DVD version is apparently out-of-print and quite rare; the available prices were very high. You can purchase a VHS copy for less than $10 if you have a VCR in which to view it. There are also a few offerings on eBay. If you still have time to purchase and wait for the tape's arrival before your exam, this would be a good alternative. You might also want to try your local public library. They are usually a good source for literary-type films. Good luck.

You can find it at both Blockbuster Online and Netflix (online) - and both have free trial periods.

Both also offer video streaming via the internet - so select this as the option you wish to "try free."  Just remember to cancel after the 2 week or 1 month free period if you no longer wish to be charged.  I currently use Blockbuster Online and used Netflix in the past - both have outstanding customer service and canceling is easy.  Even if you forgot to cancel on the exact right date, if you called, they'd remove the charges.
