Look Back in Anger


The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

In Northern England, frustrated college dropout Jimmy Porter (Richard Burton) plays music at a jazz club at night and by day works at a candy stall with partner Cliff Lewis (Gary Raymond), who lives with Jimmy and his wife, Alison (Mary Ure). Embittered by the strictures of working-class life, Jimmy constantly insults Alison, whose family is upper class. When Alison invites her best friend, self-assured Helena (Claire Bloom), to stay with them, Jimmy's grievances threaten to boil over.
