The Starfish (1950, 45 mins): supernatural fantasy made by John Schlesinger and Alan Cooke as students
Sunday Bloody Sunday (Blu-ray) BFI
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.
