Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, DVD


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?
