Against the Law (2017)
Critic Reviews for Against the Law
This somber BBC production... intercuts eyewitness accounts from grizzled survivors of homophobia in postwar England with a dramatic treatment of the life of journalist and activist Peter Wildeblood.
The triumph of Against the Law is to have balanced drama and matchless personal testimonial with such grace.
This was a really thought-provoking drama with a justified undercurrent of anger at the way gay men were treated.
The script was strong on the factions within the gay community, and the erasure of class divisions among homosexuals. But nothing was quite as moving as the interviews.
Here was all of the wit and compassion you find in Wildeblood's prose, combined with emotions I'd hitherto only been able rather half-heartedly to imagine: bewilderment, fear, agonising pain.
