A young couple fall in love and get married, but life is not a bed of roses once the romance yields to a life of grim practicality.

The Review

Typical of the British New Wave of films set up north among the working classes, though as some have since pointed out acted by southern professionals with put-on accents, this is nevertheless of great socio-historical interest besides being a superb piece of kitchen-sink drama, directed with sensitivity.
