A TASTE OF HONEY | Out Now

Jo (Rita Tushingham) is an awkward, shy 17-year-old girl living with her promiscuous alcoholic mother, Helen (Dora Bryan) in the grey, bleak tenement houses of Manchester.

When driven out of her mother’s house, Jo spends the night with a black sailor, before moving in with Geoffrey, a lonely homosexual who offers to look after her when she becomes pregnant with the sailor’s child. However things become complicated when Jo’s mother returns.

Tony Richardson’s (The Charge of the Light Brigade, Tom Jones) adaptation of Shelagh Delaney’s acclaimed play is an eloquent and memorable film which went on to become a multiple award winner.
