Karel Reisz

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning

89' - 1960 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: English
Director: Karel Reisz With: Albert Finney, Shirley Anne Field, Rachel Roberts
Arthur Seaton is a lathe operator in a small town near Nottingham. He is a lively young man devoted to pleasure and thumbing his nose at authority. To that end, Seaton spends his week ends boozing and brawling and bedding down any woman he can. He makes a good wage; he has plenty of discretionary money to spend. He hates his job but is willing to put in his week at the lathe in return for the fun he can have with his pay envelope. Seaton is having an affair with Brenda, who is married to his fellow worker, Jack. Seaton enjoys the sexual liaisons with Brenda, but that's as far as he will go with her; she wants more... One of the best of the "kit chen sink" pictures of the era, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning combines humor and highly charged drama.
