Lunch Hour

Historic Gem

(Edit) 01/06/2017

When this film was made, it's probable the film makers would never have anticipated this film would be such an historically informative film. The issues portrayed in the film are just as relevant today as they were in 1962. It is a very emancipated film for the female lead character, surprisingly so. It must have been a somewhat daring film to make back in the '60's and probably no-one expected the 1960's to have so much impact on life as we know it today. The film was made at the beginning of the 1960's and offers a glimpse of the 'old values' dwindling and new values coming into being. The film uses clever but simple methods of transporting the viewer into the real and imaginary world the characters create - this kind of film could easily be adapted to theatre and brought into the 21st century, and still carry relevance today.
