Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Lester
Released:
1969
Rating:
PG-13

The Bed Sitting Room is a 1969 English film directed by Richard Lester and starring Rita Tushingham, Ralph Richardson, and Peter Cook. The film is based on a play of the same name written by Spike Milligan. This over-the-top black comedy takes place in a destroyed England at the end of the World War III. Those that survived the destruction must then band together and find a new way of life. Penelope (Tushingham), who lives with her husband Allan (Richard Warwick) in an old subway train, announces to the newly formed group that she is seventeen months pregnant. Meanwhile, Lord Fortnum (Richardson) fears that he will become a "bed sitting room." Mutations abound amongst the survivors and people begin turning into animals and animate objects. After searching for a doctor, Penelope finally gives birth, but her child is not quite what she expected it to be. The Bed Sitting Room was nominated for the Golden Berlin Bear Award at the 1969 Berlin International Film Festival.
