Experience Preferred But Not Essential

Small, basically honest, very English film, made for 'Film on Four' by David Puttnam's Goldcrest, about a girl from Cleveland filling in the summer before college with a job as a maid at a Welsh seaside hotel. The chef, an ex-seaman from Paisley, lays siege to the girl's virginity. This is the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament '60s. Nothing particularly surprising here (Ivan the wine waiter sleepwalks naked; backstairs life is uncarpeted, cheerful and over-emotional), but the sentiment is notably unforced. Found particular favour in America.
