Spotlight on British Cinema

It starts with the wars. With the Blitz it seems like the worst is over, now what’s left is to pick up the pieces, and get back to a proper way of life. But here come the Teddy Boys, Mods, Rockers, Punks—every time you look another subculture pops up to make its mark, turning that stiff upper lip into a snarl. Kitchen-sink class dramas in the fifties, outspoken cinematic reactions to the rise of conservatism in the eighties, the best British films in our collection showcase the internal oppositions and rapid changes that make England a center for cultural reinvention.
