Peter Finch and Glenda Jackson star in John Schlesinger’s piercing and brilliantly observed suburban drama.

A recent divorcée (Jackson) and middle-aged Jewish doctor (Finch) find themselves embroiled in a progressive love triangle with a bisexual artist (Murray Head). Both discover a new freedom with their young lover, as they confront the conventions and obstacles that have defined their lives.

An exploration of middle-class life and permissiveness in 1970s London, its depiction of bisexuality changed the landscape of LGBTQ+ representation on screen. Featuring outstanding, BAFTA-winning performances by Finch and Jackson, Sunday Bloody Sunday is a tender and complex view on the politics of love, lust and longing.
