Aro Favourite Saturday Night and Sunday Morning


UK 1960, 85 minutes
Dir. Karel Reisz
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Drama


Aroview: Possibly the finest film of the British New Wave, Albert Finney burns up the screen as an ‘angry young man’ who grasps at weekend freedom from his grim Nottingham horizons with belligerent humour and an egotistical attitude.

In tone, neither sentimental nor overly pessimistic, this handles its story of factory worker Finney’s affair with a married woman and the ensuing disaster with frank realism and a moral awareness. Also distinguished by some of the best B&W photography to come out of Britain. Based on Alan Sillitoe’s first novel.
