Director: Lindsay Anderson
Cast: Malcolm McDowell, Richard Warwick, Christine Noonan, David Wood, Robert Swann, Peter Jeffrey

In his breakthrough role Malcolm McDowell plays one of the public school students who are increasingly at odds with the school authorities. This influential counter-culture drama is subtle and provocative, but it feels rather dated. McDowell plays the same character in Anderson’s later films, O Lucky Man and Britannia Hospital.
