The Family Way

The Family Way

Based on Bill Naughton's warm-hearted play, The Family Way, directed by Roy Boulting, is a thought-provoking exploration of the emotional impact of the Sixties sexual revolution.

Featuring a soundtrack by Paul McCartney and starring Hayley Mills and Hywel Bennett as two sensitive youngsters who fail to consummate their marriage, following the vulgar ribaldry of their typically working-class Lancashire wedding.

The Family Way, considered controversial at the time, remains a warm, gentle comedy of manners, morals and manhood.

First released: Monday 4th May 2020
