I agree with all of this. The film is also fantastic, not only for its performances, but also the way it adapted to pass censorship is pretty interesting in itself (re: [slight but totally logical spoiler] Brenda's pregnancy).

Further to the influences, it helped establish the 'kitchen sink' genre which has given us things such as Coronation Street.

Thanks for stopping by: yes, I agree, the censorship thing is interesting. The BFI DVD has some good actor interviews on that subject, as well as a fantastic documentary on a London boys' club in the 1950s.

Had to read this for my English course, not a bad book, although I couldn't make myself care enough about the characters to get really involved. Worth a read and I would be interested in reading the follow-up book, 'Birthday'.
