The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner
Tony Richardson
1962 | 100 min | B/W | Digital

The much-loved Tom Courtenay made his name in this iconic film, the scalding story of teenager Colin Smith, who’s sent to a rural borstal for burglary but marked out by his talent as a cross-country runner. The film still stands as one of the fiercest moments in all British cinema – a dramatic tour de force with a dark message from Alan Sillitoe’s script about Britain and class, with a star-making performance at its heart.
