CGiii Comment

The kitchen sink drama evolves into colour and is still as cheerless.

This is an interesting look at 60s Britain - and, the attitude of that time.

Married life is proving difficult for newlyweds Jenny and Arthur. With well meaning but interfering parents, nosey neighbors, and a town that thrives on gossip, can their marriage last? With all these pressures it's no wonder their personal life is suffering. Will there ever be any good news?
