Description

Tracking developments in British realist cinema and its approach to representing women’s experiences and everyday lives, this lecture’s main focus will be on three pivotal post-war films: Brief Encounter (1945), Woman in a Dressing Gown (1957), and A Taste of Honey (1961). Already the subject of extensive analysis by Prof Williams, they will be used here as a vehicle for thinking through shifting ideas of femininity in post-war Britain and how these were mediated by a rapidly evolving national cinema.
