Product Description

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960) is the ‘new wave’ film which has most preserved its reputation with modern critics. Added to critical support at the time and its massive – and unexpected – box office success, it has some claim to be the most significant of the films of this period.

Factory worker and lad-about-town Arthur Seaton is having an affair with the wife of a workmate. She becomes pregnant and he starts to go out with a younger woman, Doreen. Eventually he decides to settle down with Doreen, but insists he will never conform.
