Synopsis:
Marriage, the class system, the church, the state and the frivolous hypocrisy of modern life all come within the firing line of Jimmy Porter, cinema's original angry young man and celebrated playwright John Osborne's most iconic creation. An absolute landmine of a movie on its original release, 'Look Back in Anger' inspired and shocked audiences with its unrepentant realism, explosive dialogue and frank portrayal of everyday, contemporary British life.
Featuring an incredibly intense, breakthrough performance from screen legend Richard Burton, "Look Back in Anger" is often cited as igniting the radical 'Angry Young Men' movement in film and theatre, which ran parallel with America's 'Beat Generation' and formed a gritty, groundbreaking pre-cursor to the sixties 'Kitchen Sink' dramas. By night he drunkenly prowls the local Jazz clubs, by day he runs his own market stall. Disaffected and abusive, Jimmy Porter (Richard Burton) is constantly at odds with his mundane existence, his middle-class wife and their squalid living conditions. But what really lies at the core of his resentful rebellion?
