Billy Liar ★★★

the anxiety and awkwardness of being working class and living in a upper class world, the need to appease and impress those above whilst also relating with empathy to the community surrounding you. this film effortlessly shows a time of liberation, a time where the working class was finally recovering from ww2 and the era before thatcher and the sincerity of being in between devastation.
