It Always Rains on Sunday by Robert Hamer (UK, 1947, 92 min.) On another rainy Sunday in London, as Rose Sandigate (Googie Withers) goes about her daily, mundane chores, she discovers her ex-lover, Tommy Swann (John Mc...展开Cullum), hiding in her toolshed after his escape from prison. The film combines Hitchcockian suspense with French poetic realism to create a portrait of post-war British life. "A bleak thriller realized with utter vibrancy, Robert Hamer’s savory stew of London’s lower class roils with an emotional brutality and precision that most films don’t dare attempt, let alone achieve. Dense and compact, melodramatic but never maudlin." (Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York). Co-presented by The Boston Jewish Film Festival.
