Movie Info

Tom Curtis (Richard Attenborough) works at a factory in England. His life is changed when he refuses to take part in an unofficial strike, organized by new employee Travers (Alfred Burke), a troublemaker who soon leaves the factory. Curtis sees no reason to strike, but his refusal alienates him from the rest of the unionized employees, who brand him a scab. Curtis even faces reprisals at home when a foreman (Bernard Lee) comes and warns him to fall in line.

Critic Reviews for The Angry Silence

All Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • The industrial tensions that were lampooned in I'm All Right, Jack are treated with gravity and passion in a British drama starring Richard Attenborough...

    November 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • In many ways the factory world isn't unlike school: there is the same sort of gang-life, close proximity, and prefectorial system; above all a similar attitude to authority and a similar hatred for anyone who appears to be on its side.

    July 13, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film has several themes whose admixture and thorough working out, possible in a novel, are less ideally suited to the cinema. To cover them all successfully would demand a grasp that is as yet beyond Bryan Forbes', the scriptwriter's, capacities.

    January 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • If the film takes a broad brush approach to its issues of individual rights versus the collective - and dips into melodrama in terms of the violence portrayed - Attenborough is a master of subtle emotional shift.

    February 3, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Before he became director (Gandhi), Attenborough excelled as actor, here giving a powerful performance in the British Oscar-nominated drama about a man who refuses to join his mates in labor strike.
