Movie Info

Manchester draftsman Vic Brown (Alan Bates) becomes involved with secretary Ingrid Rothwell (June Ritchie), who works at his firm. After they sleep together, she gets pregnant. Vic feels a sense of responsibility -- although he's not really in love with her -- and proposes marriage. The couple is forced to live with Ingrid's mother (Thora Hird), who treats Vic with contempt because of his working-class background. But, when tragedy strikes, Vic must decide what his new wife means to him.

Audience Reviews for A Kind of Loving

  • Jun 20, 2011
    This domestic tale from director John Schlesinger has that endearing, lo-fi authenticity so typical of British films from this era. Alan Bates and June Christie give excellent performances as a newlywed couple, and Thora Hird is loathsome perfection as Christie's shrew mother. The early scenes of blossoming love are wonderfully sweet, and this film has as good a "first kiss" as I've ever seen. However, there's too much movie for such a simple, humdrum story (a couple gets married for the wrong reason, and struggles through the early months of wedlock).
