Neither Vic nor Ingrid is an especially compelling presence, but the actors make the sad moments pierce and the bursts of jubilation explode.
June Ritchie makes an appealing debut as the bewildered Lancashire lass. Alan Bates is a likeable hero who will hold most audience's sympathy despite his weaknesses.
Yet with all faults (which include a clumsily episodic structure), it remains keenly observant in detail and rather moving in its very unpretentiousness.
The actors are led through the series with confidence by Mr. Schlesinger and they display their conventional reactions with warmth, sensitivity and force.
Alan Bates is at his handsome, wickedly charming peak in A Kind of Loving.
The acting is firm, exact and sympathetic.
This is a compelling snapshot of Britain before the Sixties began to swing.
One of the greatest achievements of the marriage between 'angry young man' drama and the Free Cinema movement in Britain in the early 1960s
I was, and still am, deeply moved by the plight of both Vic and Ingrid in their attempt to find happiness and 'a kind of loving'.
A moving portrait of the bumps on the road in a relationship.
There's a welcome freshness to Schlesinger's feature debut, not yet showing the sophisticated polish of his later years.
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).
