Good Afternoon Lovelies, 

When I did film studies at A Level I spent a whole module looking at the Kitchen Sink films of the 60s. Films that made British cinema the gritty place it now and will probably always be. During the module I was asked to watch a number of films including A Kind of Loving. 

Based in Manchester, the film is adapted from the book of the same name and follows a young man and the woman he loves. Vic Brown is a young draughtsman who falls for his employee Ingrid Rothwell. The pair is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, marriage and more mishaps that show the different actions taken in different times. 

The film is a base for many other films and TV shows that followed it. British cinema knows how to make an audience feel something and the way in which the pair has their story explored on screen has been taken and changed many times since. 

Vic and Ingrid are two characters that represent the way in which people react to news in a very honest way. With four BAFTA nominations behind it, the film is a very truthful representation of the characters and the way in which they can make an impact on their audiences. 

It shows Manchester in a different light and represents the city in a light that people can connect to. There is a sense in everyone’s lives or a time at least in which they want to run away and Vic’s way of sharing this with the audience is one that many people can connect to. 

The film is hard-hitting and there are many moments that will shock viewers but it isn’t a bad shock. It is just the shock of knowing that this is something that probably happened to many people. 

That is why I am giving it…
