Review
A truly excellent piece of British filmmaking from the 40s. Housewife Rose Sandigate finds her world thrown into turmoil when an old flame, an escaped prisoner, seeks shelter in the home she has made for herself with her sedate husband George and children. The tension builds between the two as Rose fights her desire to rekindle a much-missed passion. Superbly realised depiction of post war urban England, specifically the East End, and the moral ambiguities that were creeping into society, particularly attitudes to adultery.
