Based on Lynne Reid Banks’ best-selling novel, The L-Shaped Room (1962) tells the tale of a young woman (the superb Leslie Caron), unmarried and pregnant, who takes a bed-sit in a run-down London rooming house to consider her situation. Screenwriter-director Bryan Forbes brings to vibrant life an eccentric community of misfits who become a kind of surrogate family; the stunning cast includes the wonderful likes of Tom Bell, Brock Peters, Cicely Courtneidge, and Patricia Phoenix. Beautifully shot by Douglas Slocombe, and featuring incidental music by John Barry.
