Charlie Bubbles

Directed by Albert Finney

After achieving international renown as one of the finest actors of his generation, Albert Finney (RIP) turned director for this surreal comic twist on the ‘kitchen sink’ dramas in which he’d made his name. Based on a screenplay by Shelagh Delaney, the script clearly references both her and Finney’s personal experience of their shared working class origins (both were Salford natives), and the consequences of achieving great success.
