Look Back in Anger ★★★ 1989

There's something about John Osborne's play that brings out the angry young man in British leads. Richard Burton played Osborne's irascible guy in 1958, Malcom McDowell looked back angrily in ‘80, and now Branagh convincingly vents his spleen on wife and mistress in this made for British TV production. Director Jones earlier filmed “84 Charing Cross Road” and “Jacknife.” 114m/C VHS, DVD . GB Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Gerard Horan, Siobhan Redmond; D: David Hugh Jones. TV
