The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner marked the beginning of a lifelong love affair with Tom Courtenay, who is nothing short of brilliant in this film.
I am not sure when I first saw this film but I doubt that it was in 1961, when I am certain that it would have been considered inappropriate for a girl of the age that I was then,
Definitely bum-numbing, this is a gripping and involving story and is completely memorable.
Kes was Brave, Innovative and Ground-breaking. A memorable, touching, heart-rending, and sobering film.
