This painful remnant (1961) of the British cinema's kitchen-sink period finds slum child Rita Tushingham burdened with an alcoholic mother, a baby (by a black sailor) on the way, and a vagrant homosexual teenager for her only friend. In short, it's Real Life. Tony Richardson, who directed this mess, was once quoted as saying, “The British cinema is the worst in the world,” and he was in a position to know. With Robert Stephens, Dora Bryan, and Murray Melvin. 100 min.
