Saturday Night and Sunday Morning


Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is one of the most perfectly turned film titles. The full gamut of one stifled workingman's emotional life is right there: Saturday night's booze-fed highs tailed by Sunday morning coming down. Arthur Seaton, played by a peerless Albert Finney, is a young machinist in a Nottingham factory. His wages buy endless pints, which dull his judgment enough that he begins an ill-advised affair with Brenda, the wife of an older co-worker. At the same time, he's seeing Doreen, a single woman closer to his own age. This 1960 film is a stalwart classic of modern British cinema. Saturday Night and Sunday Morning screens at the Tivoli Theatre as part of the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum's series A Critical Eye: Avant-Garde Cinema of the 1960s.
