"John Schlesinger's directorial debut is a simple yet delightfully refreshing film ... [which] went on to win the prestigious Golden Bear Award at the Berlin International Film Festival ..." – Dr. Svet Atanasov, Blu-ray.com
The debut full-length feature film from acclaimed director John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy), A Kind Of Loving stars Alan Bates as Vic Brown, a young draughtsman whose search for love leads to Ingrid Rothwell (June Ritchie, in her silver screen debut), an employee in the company. Ingrid quickly falls in love with Vic ... but when she becomes pregnant, Vic only reluctantly agrees to marry her. Finding himself forced into a life he never wanted, Vic resents Ingrid and the position of sudden responsibility. When Ingrid ends up losing the baby, Vic, spurred on by the acid-tongue remarks of his sour mother-in-law (Thora Hird), makes a decision that could change all of their lives forever.
