From daring filmmaker John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy), Sunday Bloody Sunday represents the 1970s. As London is heading towards financial collapse, three people become entangled in a bi-sexual love triangle. Bob Elkin (Murray Head), a young twenty-something artist has two loves; successful London doctor Daniel Hirsch (Peter Finch) and intelligent, divorced thirty-something Alex Greville (Glenda Jackson). Jealousy reigns as Bob tries to spend equal time with them, but fails. In frustrated protest, Alex proceeds to have an affair with a business executive George Harding (Tony Britton). Bob, however, is nonplussed about the whole thing, further driving Alex away. As things come to a head, Bob must choose only one love.
Receiving rave reviews for its positive depiction of homosexuality and multifaceted sexual taboo’s Sunday Bloody Sunday is a provocative masterwork.
