A Taste of Honey

A lively tale of a pregnant Salford teenager, her mother, and her unlikely friendship with a gay man. Time has left its mark on many of the innovative British new wave films of the Sixties, but Tony Richardson's affecting film remains as fresh and powerful as ever. Rita Tushingham's indelible debut performance and that of Dora Bryan as the floozie mother are cinematic landmarks. Based on the play by Shelagh Delaney.
