SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY

Nominated for four Academy Awards including best director, SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY is the 1971 British drama written by Penelope Gilliat. It tells the story of a free-spirited young bisexual artist (Murray Head) and his simultaneous relationships with a divorced career woman (Glenda Jackson) and a middle-aged Jewish male doctor (Peter Finch).

It was significant for its time with Finch’s lead gay character depicted as successful, complex and human, and not negatively portrayed as in many other films of the day.
