Course Description:

British filmmakers have long provided searing chronicles of working-class lives, beginning with the “kitchen sink” films of the 1950s and '60s. Mike Leigh is today one of the most highly regarded of these writer/directors, having focused his work on British workingclass families and their sometimes-tumultuous lives. We will watch and discuss four of Leigh’s films and place them in the context of the social class structure of Great Britain.
