Saturday Night and Sunday Morning

Movie Summary

Director:
Karel Reisz
Released:
1961
Rating:
R
Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is an ambiguous 1961 film about a reckless, uninhibited factory worker who becomes increasingly tormented by impending feelings of settling down and assuming a more moral, socially-acceptable lifestyle. The film is based on a book of the same name written by Alan Sillitoe who helped director Karel Reisz adapt the script for screen. Arthur Seaton (Albert Finney - Tom Jones, Murder on the Orient Express, The Dresser, Big Fish) works tiresome days as a factory worker in Britain. Most days are mundane and replicable. On the weekends Arthur buries his fears and boredom in a cloud of alcohol-induced intoxication and fleeting affairs with women. But he is forced to reconsider his life's choices when he impregnates a beautiful, respectable young woman he is seeing. Is Arthur ready to abandon his careless, hedonistic ways in exchange for a calmer life with his new love? As he entertains his options, he becomes fearful that he may be settling for less. Saturday Night and Sunday Morning co-stars Shirley Anne Field, Rachel Roberts, Hylda Baker, Norman Rossington, Bryan Pringle, Robert Cawdron and Edna Morris. A great movie with a soft lesson in morality at it's core!moreless
