Billy Liar + Intro

Few films tell a heart-breaking story as hilariously as Billy Liar, the tale of a young clerk lost to daydreams in his Yorkshire home town – those daydreams gleefully brought to life on screen. But beneath the playfulness the film is a masterclass in melancholy. Released into a Britain newly smitten with working class pop culture, it forever sealed the fame of dockworker’s son Tom Courtenay.
