The world of regular people depicted in the arts became known as Kitchen Sink Realism in the 1950s. The name came from a painting called the Kitchen Sink by John Bratby.

To 'Look Back in Anger' at the harsh realities of the working class people, particulary in the UK, through film, paintings, books and plays shows that despite social democracy the class system was still prevalent in affecting working class issues and the increased frustration of not knowing what to do about it.

A Taste of Honey

Adapted from a landmark play written by 18 year old Shelagh Delaney, A Taste of Honey has stood the test of time better than many of its contemporaries. With a plotline that has been pillaged and plagiarised by just about every soap ever (young neglected girl finds love in the arms of a stranger and is left holding the baby), the movie is characterised by a clutch of terrific performances (the triumvirate of Rita Tushingham, Dora Bryan and Murray Melvin, in particular, is a joy to watch).

Music fans may also care to note that A Taste of Honey featured the first solo work by then young Beatle, Paul McCartney, as well as a whole host of lines later stolen virtually wholesale by Morrissey.

Well i'm glad to help you out Cosy...



Not a huge fan of "Whistle Down the Wind" to be honest and be warned that as it isn't really a kitchen sink drama you may well evoke the wrath of the Hells Granny one...

However, I am a fcuking huge fan of "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"...



...And an even bigger fan of "Saturday Night, Sunday Morning" (Both adapted from the fantastic writer Alan Silitoe's great novels)...And coming to think of it, Finney in "Saturday Night, Sunday Morning" does remind me of your good self Monsieur Cosy Chuckles...

People say to me... Granny who are The Angry Young Men and what did they do?...wikipedia can say it so much better than me as I am quite tired right now...

The British New Wave is the name given to a trend in filmmaking among directors in Britain in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The label is a translation of Nouvelle Vague, the French term first applied to the films of François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and others.

There is considerable overlap between the New Wave and the so-called "Angry Young Men", those artistes in British theatre and film such as playwright John Osborne and director Tony Richardson, who challenged the social status quo.

The "angry young men" were a group of mostly working and middle class British playwrights and novelists who became prominent in the 1950s. The group's leading members included John Osborne and Kingsley Amis.The phrase was originally coined by the Royal Court Theatre's press officer to promote John Osborne's Look Back in Anger.

It is thought to be derived from the autobiography of Leslie Paul, founder of the Woodcraft Folk, whose Angry Young Man was published in 1951. Following the success of the Osborne play, the label was later applied by British newspapers to describe young British writers who were characterized by a disillusionment with traditional English society. The term, always imprecise, began to have less meaning over the years as the writers to whom it was originally applied became more divergent, and many of them dismissed the label as useless.
