Based on Andrea Dunbar’s play, director Alan Clarke’s (Scum, Made in Britain) bristling, bawdy British comedy-drama follows two schoolgirls living on Bradford’s Buttershaw estate, Rita and Sue, who work as babysitters and embark on an affair with their wealthy employer Bob. Part sex comedy, part social critique, Clarke’s vibrant film explores the humour and desperation of Thatcher’s divided Britain.
