Rita wants to be educated. She's a young working class girl who becomes involved with a cynical and alcoholic university tutor. A brilliant comedy of social attitudes and class differences, with more than a hint of romance. The film drew best ever performances from the two lead actors.

When two couples enter the London to Brighton veteran car rally a frendly rivalry develops. The witty dialogue sumptous locations (shot in early Technicolor), and fine performances, blend together to produce a fondly remembered British comedy. find out more...

The best film in the history of comic British cinema. A black tale of sex, adultery, murder and social class told with low key irony. Alec Guinness plays all the leading roles, and the delightfully witty and sardonic script is ideal for him. A landmark of British film. find out more...

Mike Leigh serves up another delicious slice of frighteningly real British family life. Alison Steadman is outstanding as the suburban mother of teenage twin daughters, one a plumber, the other a heavily depressed and anti-social bulimic. Stark, hilarious, tragic but ultimately uplifting. Brilliant British film making. find out more...

When everyone on the train denies ever having seen the lady the plot thickens, but what is brilliant is how the script resolves this and other conundrums. Superb. find out more...

The last of the Ealing comedies. A gang of crooks take up lodgings in the house of a dotty old lady. Using her as cover they plan a bank robbery. However their ineptitude and a chain of misfortune lead to their downfall and a windfall for the naive, innocent old lady. Oh so dark and oh so brilliant! find out more...
