Leeds Welcome | Look Back in Anger

Look Back in Anger

Jimmy Porter (Richard Burton) – a disillusioned, college-educated Trumpeter, raging against the Establishment – works by day on a sweet stall in the market. His downtrodden, middle-class wife suffers the brunt of his tirades, but when he vents his anger by having an affair with her best friend it causes untold misery for everyone he knows. Tony Richardson’s feature debut is the epitome of the kitchen-sink drama that spawned a new genre of British social-protest films. DIRECTOR: Tony Richardson DETAILS: UK, 1958, 98mins, PG STARRING: Richard Burton, Claire Bloom, Mary Ure F-RATED: No
