‘77

UK, 1997 (MIFF 1998, Fiction)

Director: Jeremy Webb

The 70s were tumultuous times but one bit of nostalgia overlooked by The Ice Storm was the cultural impact of the Sex Pistols. '77 is as much a coming of age story set in a small Sussex village as it is about the currents of change that were challenging the traditions and deep-seated moralism of a society uncertain about its future. '77 sweeps us into David's lovelorn experiences amidst a backdrop that evocatively conveys the mood of seventies Britain with an undercurrent of rebellion bristling beneath the surface.
