More A Taste of Honey than The Wild One. - The Leather Boys review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
03/12/2012

The Leather Boys is a personal favourite among the British New Wave films. The nominal star is Rita Tushingham, but the real draw is the relationship of Dudley Sutton with Rita's new husband, Colin Campbell. The film centres around a motorcycle race up the A1, and is a treat for bike enthusiasts and those with an interest in the feel of provincial life in the UK, in the early 60s.

But it the vulnerable characters of Sutton and Campbell that haunt you, still children, but having to behave like adults, not quite sure yet what the rules are.

The Leather Boys is a must see for those who enjoy the new realism that reinvigorated UK cinema between the war and the permissive society.
