Saturday Night and Sunday Morning Blu-ray
Starring Albert Finney, Shirley Anne Field, Hylda Baker, Rachel Roberts, Bryan Pringle, Norman Rossington, Robert Cawdron
Directed by Karel Reisz
Director Karel Reisz's adaptation of Alan Sillitoe's novel about a hard-living factory worker and the married woman he seduces.
Arthur Seaton (Albert Finney) is a young man filled with a rage perhaps even he doesn't fully understand.
Working in the tough environment of a Nottingham factory, he compensates for the drudgery and discipline of his weekday life with weekends spent drinking and womanising.
His affair with a fellow factory worker's wife, Brenda (Rachel Roberts), seems especially ill-advised - particularly when Brenda informs him that she is pregnant with his child.
With abortion illegal at the time, Arthur and Brenda face a difficult dilemma.
Will Arthur face up to the kind of domestic responsibilities he openly scorns in his own parents, or run harder than ever?
