The Ploughman's Lunch


Heavy drama with suspect direction...

A heavy watch is not helped by suspect direction and characters it’s impossible to like, as The Ploughman’s Lunch encapsulates everything joyless about ’80s Britain.

Ian McEwan’s screenplay does its best to rewrite A Bouquet Of Barbed Wire as political satire, but the end result is as tired as a Ben Elton stand-up of similar vintage.
