All Things Bright And Beautiful

Synopsis:
an exuberant and racy comedy which is yet a sad commentary on twentieth-century bureaucracy. the Hesseltines are living in property well overdue for demolition and are looking forward to being rehoused in more beautiful and salubrious surroundings. the crisis comes when they find that, far from a house with a little bit of garden, they are to live in a warrenous block of flats. . .

Billy Liar

Synopsis:
Less than dedicated to his job as undertaker's clerk bored with his North Country family background, Billy Fisher takes refuge in his own invented world. For Billy, an energetic imagination makes life tolerable but well-nigh intolerable for all around him. He lies his way into and out of every situation producing any explanation and making any promise that will extricate him from his present predicament, and thereby creating ever more tortuous entanglements for the immediate future.
