The Family Way (1966)
Sunday 29th March 2020
Based on Bill Naughton's warm-hearted play, The Family Way, directed by Roy Boulting, is a thought-provoking exploration of the emotional impact of the Sixties sexual revolution.
Featuring a soundtrack by Paul McCartney and starring Hayley Mills and Hywel Bennett as two sensitive youngsters who fail to consummate their marriage, following the vulgar ribaldry of their typically working-class Lancashire wedding.
The Family Way, released on DVD and Blu-ray 4th May 2020 by StudioCanal, considered controversial at the time, remains a warm, gentle comedy of manners, morals and manhood.
