RITA, SUE AND BOB TOO (1987) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Siobhan Finneran, Michelle Holmes, George Costigan, Lesley Sharp, Willie Ross, Kulvinder Ghir, Patti Nicholls
Directed By:  Alan Clarke
Composed By:  Michael Kamen

“A bleak, sardonic British comedy about the violation of a taboo…a movie about two tough, deprived girls from the worst part of town and an irresponsible, feather-brained adult who thinks he’s taking advantage of them when they’re in fact a whole lot more worldly and cynical than he is.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“A sad-funny comedy about sex and life in the Yorkshire city of Bradford…a completely convincing mixture of raunchy comedy and sadness “ —Variety

“Played with heart, humor, and substance…Mr. Clarke plays up the fun-loving aspects of the material enough to create a sly, absurdist tone.” —Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Rita, Sue and Bob Too (1987), helmed by esteemed cult director Alan Clarke, is a sex farce and then some: a biting critique of Britain’s Thatcher years’ society, it blends horror and humor to shattering effect. The story of two teenagers (played by Downton Abbey’s evil O’Brien, Siobhan Finneran, and Michelle Holmes) who enter into a sexual misalliance with a married man (George Costigan), the film paints a grisly but amusing picture of misspent British youth in an age devoid of dreams.
