A Taste of Honey

DVD - 2016
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Based on one of the most controversial plays of its time, shows how a disaffected teenager finds her way amid the economic desperation of industrial Manchester, and despite an absent, self-absorbed mother. With its unapologetic identification with social outcasts and its sensitive, modern approach to matters of sexuality and race, a classic that is still a startling benchmark work of realism.

Films don’t get braver than this, which tackles interracial relationships, teen pregnancy and the dignity of gay people. It feels very real even now, nearly sixty years after its making. I enjoyed it and felt a lot of empathy for its characters.

Excellent acting & vivid depiction of 1950's working class Manchester. More of a character sketch than a satisfying story.

Terrific. And it still holds up after almost 60 years. Gritty and unsentimental but you really care about the 2 leads.
It also pairs up nicely with the first few series of Call The Midwife which shares the same milieu. (Note: not the later CTM series - they seem to be getting more sentimental and mawkish each year.)
