This is the seminal British New Wave film, its anti-establishment energy and gritty realism centred on the irresistible working-class hero Arthur Seaton, played by Albert Finney (Tom Jones, Gumshoe); unashamedly amoral, he spends his days in the factory, evenings in the pub and nights in the arms of a married woman.

Powerful performances, from Shirley Anne Field (Alfie, Lunch Hour) and Rachel Roberts (This Sporting Life) amongst others, combine with crackling dialogue and a superb jazz score to create a vibrant modern classic.

This digitally remastered edition is presented with a range of exciting extra features.

Special Features:

  • Commentary by film historian Robert Murphy, with writer Alan Sillitoe and cinematographer Freddie Francis
  • New interview with Shirley Anne Field
  • Interview with Albert Finney
  • We Are the Lambeth Boys (1959), Karel Reisz's classic Free Cinema documentary

Director: Tony Richardson (Tom Jones, A Taste of Honey)

Actors: Michael Redgrave (The Dam Busters, The Lady Vanishes) Tom Courtenay (Doctor Zhivago, Quartet, The Golden Compass)
