    Georgy Girl, Room at the Top, and Love on the Dole

  • John Ost

    Georgy Girl, To Sir With Love, Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral although in the last one you never really learn what the cast of characters do for a living.

  • Barbra Buckley

    Billy Elliot

  • Carpe Dijon

    Riff-Raff is the first film that comes to my mind. I’ve not seen it since it was in American theaters in the early ’90s and I often remind myself that I’d like to see it again.

    My favorites are “Saturday Night and Sunday Morning”, “It Always Rains on Sunday”, and “The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner”.

  • Nikki

    Tony Richardson’s 1961 film A Taste of Honey, with Rita Tushingham.

    This Sporting Life

  • gaetano catelli

    Match Point.

    The Full Monty!
