Saturday Night and Sunday Morning

Introduced by Andrew Haigh!

One of the defining films of the 1960s British New Wave, Karel Reisz’s rarely screened Saturday Night and Sunday Morning stars Albert Finney in his debut role as a rebellious factory worker juggling relationships with both a girlfriend and a married woman. The film’s raw subject matter and style had a profound influence on many British filmmakers, including Ken Loach, Mike Leigh, and our guest presenter Andrew Haigh, whose wonderfully honest and very sexy new film WEEKEND (opening at the IFC Center Fri 9/23) has become one of the most highly-anticipated queer films in years. Haigh writes, “Its exploration of the ‘outsider’ battling the mainstream is a theme essential to both the queer experience and to the kind of stories I want to tell.” Don’t miss it!
