Capital Celluloid 2024 — Day 136: Wed May 15

This Sporting Life (Anderson, 1963): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 5.50pm

This is a 35mm screening (also being shown on May 1st and from digital on May 23rd) and is part of the Lindsay Anderson season at BFI Southbank.

Chicago Reader review:
Lindsay Anderson's debut film (1963) is probably the best crafted of the British "kitchen sink" movies and features a memorable if somewhat theatrical performance by Richard Harris as a rugby star who can't handle success.
Dave Kehr

Here is the trailer.
