Product Notes

A Taste of Honey (Criterion Collection)

"The revolutionary British New Wave films of the early 1960s were celebrated for their uncompromising depictions of working-class lives and relations between the sexes. Directed by Tony Richardson (Tom Jones), a leading light of that movement, and based on one of the most controversial plays of it's time, A Taste of Honey stars Rita Tushingham (The Knack), in a star-making debut role, as a disaffected teenager finding her way amid the economic desperation of industrial Manchester, and despite an absent, self-absorbed mother. With it's unapologetic identification with social outcasts and it's sensitive, modern approach to matters of sexuality and race, Richardson's classic is a still startling benchmark work of realism.Blu-ray includes interviews with the actors, audio interview with the director, interview with theater curator Kate Dorney about the play on which the movie was based, excerpt of interview with the playwright and essay by scholar Colin MacCabe. 1961/b&w/100 min/NR/widescreen.
