It Always Rains on Sunday
An escaped convict seeks refuge in his ex-girlfriend’s house.
Dir Robert Hamer
With Googie Withers, John McCallum, Jack Warner
When an escaped convict (McCallum) demands that an old flame (Withers) – now married but bored – let him hide in her Bethnal Green home, she inevitably experiences mixed emotions. Suspenseful and pleasingly sour in its observation of familial tensions, Hamer’s classic makes imaginative use of an ordinary postwar home; in particular, the bedroom becomes a spur for private memories and illicit desires.
