The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner


Impetuous youth tussles with authority in Tony Richardson's in-the-clink, kitchen-sink classic. Tom Courtenay is superlative as Colin, a just-imprisoned likely lad whose talent for cross-country running might be his ticket out of jail. Much railing against those in charge is intercut with lyrical jogging sequences, the pursuit of "birds" and a day-trip to Skeggy.
