This influential British kitchen-sink’ drama, directed in gritty black and white by Tony Richardson (Tom Jones), follows the apparently doomed marriage of an English couple, Jimmy and Allison Porter. Richard Burton gives a stunning performance as Jimmy, a role that showed audiences he could perform on screen without the aid of historic armor. Look Back in Anger served as a seminal part of Britain’s ‘Angry Young Man’ movement of theatrical dramas, novels and films and heralded the beginning of the England’s New Wave cinema.’
Look Back in Anger was director Tony Richardson’s first feature for his newly formed Woodfall Films production company.
