Albert Finney stars in and directs this tale of a successful writer returning to his roots.
Dir Albert Finney
With Albert Finney, Billie Whitelaw, Liza Minnelli
Having soared to fame at the start of the 60s, Albert Finney stepped behind the camera for this freewheeling one-off, his only film as a director. The story has a streak of autobiography, with Finney himself playing a celebrated writer returning home to working-class Salford in a gold Rolls-Royce. With a glorious script by Shelagh Delaney, this is a spry and singular minor classic.
