DIRECTOR: ALAN CLARKE

CAST: MICHELLE HOLMES, SIOBHAN FINNERAN, GEORGE COSTIGAN

A sex comedy set against the very unsexy backdrop of drab, no-hope Bradford, Yorkshire, Rita, Sue and Bob Too finds Clarke’s roving, restless Steadicam delineating a menage-a-trois between two working-class teenagers (Siobhan Finneran and Michelle Holmes) and Bob (George Costigan), half of the well-to-do suburban couple they’ve been babysitting for. A scalpel-sharp, bitterly comic dissection of class and gender relations in 1980s England or, as the tagline had it: “Thatcher’s Britain with her knickers down.”
