Rits, Sue and Bob Too (1987)

From 1987 comes a British comedy about life in Britain, you follow Bob played by George Costigan who as an affair with his babysitters Rita played by Siobhan Finneran and Sue played by Michelle Holmes. This film shows a harsh light on 80’s Britain with the state of the urban landscape and the attitudes of the characters. It follows Rita and Sue as they discuss what they want from life and how they can go about getting it and follows the three main characters as their relationship develops. Also there is a look at their home lives.

This film is actually really funny; the sex in the car scene always sticks in my mind, especially Bob’s reaction at the end of it. The acting is quite good though I do not believe the actresses only being of school age but apart from that they were all really good in the roles that they were in. Written by Andrea Dunbar and directed by Alan Clarke this is an interesting look at 80’s Britain, very similar feel to The Full Monty but actually from that time.

I really enjoyed this film though I am not the biggest fan of British films from the 80’s I feel they date to quickly, probably as I can actually remember the 80’s. This film is only really dated by the fashion and the cars everything else could still be from last year, overall this is a 7 out of 10 film, well worth seeing.
