Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 227: Sat Aug 15

Sparrows Can't Sing (Littlewood, 1962): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 3.30pm


This is part of the London on Film season and the screening includes a Q&A with stars Barbara Windsor and Murray Melvin. Full details here.

BFI Southbank preview:
Joan Littlewood’s only feature paints a vivid picture of London’s East End and its larger-than-life characters (so vivid that it was subtitled for American audiences). When Charlie (James Booth) returns from two years at sea he finds his wife (a terrific performance by Barbara Windsor) has traded in their two-up, two-down for a highrise, and him for a bus driver.
