StudioCanal and Emfoundation are pleased to announce the release of a new restoration of the 1962 classic A Kind Of Loving. The Manchester-set acclaimed 'Kitchen Sink' drama directed by John Schlesinger will be released on DVD, for the first time on Blu-ray on 1st August 2016.

Shot and set in Manchester, A Kind Of Loving was adapted from the Stan Barstow novel of the same name. Directed by John Schlesinger (Darling, Midnight Cowboy), the film stars Alan Bates as Vic Brown, a young draughtsman, whose search for love leads to Ingrid Rothwell (June Ritchie, in her screen debut), an employee in the company.

Ingrid quickly falls in love with Vic, only to find herself falling pregnant after which Vic reluctantly agrees to marry her. Finding himself forced into a life he never wanted, Vic resents Ingrid and the position he finds himself in. Ingrid ends up losing the baby and Vic, spurred on by the acid tongue remarks of his sour mother in law (Thora Hird) decides to run away.

  • Interview with writer and broadcaster Stuart Maconie (author of Adventures on the High Teas: In Search of Middle England and Pies and Prejudice: In Search of the North)
  • A Kind of Loving & The British New Wave featurette including interviews with John Hill and Melanie Williams
  • NFT interview with John Schlesinger from 1988
