John Schlesinger followed his Academy Award-winning Midnight Cowboy with this sophisticated and highly personal take on love and sex. Sunday Bloody Sunday depicts the romantic lives of two Londoners, a middle-aged doctor and a prickly thirtysomething divorcée-played by Oscar winners Peter Finch and Glenda Jackson-who are sleeping with the same handsome young artist. A revelation in its day, this may be the 1970s' most intelligent, multitextured film about the complexities of romantic relationships; it is keenly acted and sensitively directed, from a penetrating screenplay by novelist and critic Penelope Gilliatt.
