Rolling Home (1982)

1982 | UK | Alan Bennett | ★★★★

Shown during the Objects of Affection season, Alan Bennett's melancholically witty Rolling Home is a beautifully written, sensitively acted BBC2 Playhouse drama, packed with mordant social commentary, thoughtful characterisation, and potent symbolism.


"Dad has ended up in a corporation home - nice food, good grounds, but Dad simply gazes at the outside wall. Donald, the nurse, knows what's on the other side but he's not telling." BBC
