‘A film that genuinely changed British cinema for ever’
The Guardian

A mature treatment of sexuality and class, Room at the Top is a landmark of the British New Wave. It won two Academy Awards and several BAFTAs, including Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actress for Signoret in her first English-language role. In post-war industrial Yorkshire, social climbing Joe Lampton (Laurence Harvey) aims to woo the boss’s daughter as he attempts to reach the top of his profession. But when his working-class background hampers his efforts, Joe seeks solace with the unhappily married and yet free-thinking Alice (Simone Signoret) – an affair that will have dire consequences.
