UK 1967
Dir Ken Loach
With Carol White, Terence Stamp, John Bindon

Adapted from Nell Dunn’s novel, Loach’s first theatrical feature (made after the acclaimed TV film Cathy Come Home) charts the faltering progress of the sadly misnamed Joy (White) who, when her brutish husband is imprisoned, takes up with his associate Dave (Stamp). The school of hard knocks, sociopolitical relevance, evocative locations, naturalistic acting... even now, Loach remains true to his younger self.

Also available on BFI Player.
