Working Class Heroes

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning PG

Director: Karel Reisz
Cast: Shirley Anne Field, Albert Finney

Country: UK
Year: 1960
Duration: 89m

From the pen of Nottingham's ultimate working class hero Alan Sillitoe, this is the Nottingham-set story of a rebellious young factory worker who lives for a good time. Although the overall mood is dark, Albert Finney is superbly colourful as Arthur, a defiant and raging young bull, suffocating in a working class purgatory.

“At a time when angry young men railed against the injustices of life, Arthur Seaton was the only "kitchen sink" hero to accept that, while life was nasty, brutish and short, you had to make the best of it.[…] This ground-breaker has lost none of its power.”
