Pity poor Vic. When he begins a relationship with Ingrid, a typist at the Lancashire factory where he works as a draughtsman his life comes apart at the seams. One of the most tender of the British ‘kitchen sink’ dramas of the 60s, Schlesinger’s debut feature is a poignant adaptation of Stan Barstow’s novel of the same name.
The 20:30 screening on Tue 21 Jun will be introduced by broadcaster and author Stuart Maconie.
