Demonstrating the richness and variety of a national cinema that has traditionally struggled to define itself between the paradigms of Hollywood popular film and European art cinema, this study provides comprehensive coverage of British cinema in general as well as critical discussions of specific films--useful for screenings. Each chapter covers a specific topic and includes detailed descriptions of key films representative of different historical periods.
