Bleak Moments (1971)

Film ‘Bleak Moments’ (1971) directed by Mike Leigh.

Guardian Review: “All that remains to be said is that this striking and entirely original first feature contains a performance of great depth from Anne Raitt as the girl.”

Telegraph Review: “Much the same qualities turn up in a very different context in Mike Leigh’s Bleak Moments and again an actress, Anne Raitt, – sensitive in the extreme –is largely responsible for the success of a film.

Derek Malcolm’s review of ‘Bleak Moments’. Best film at The Taormina Film Festival. “No other cinematic portrait of suburban England is so touching, so funny and ultimately so sad, and no other cameos of its denizens strike a truer note than those of Anne Raitt as the lonely girl.”

BBC Film ‘Another Day’ (1978) directed by James O’Brien. Penny Valentine’s review: “The play’s real triumph though is the characterisation of anti-heroine Eileen, superbly realized by Anne Raitt. With the merest gesture of shoulder or hand she defines the necessary bruised hesitancy towards life – quite extraordinary.”

BBC television series ‘Roughnecks’ (1994-95). Scotsman review: “With Roughnecks you just can’t help liking them. Roughnecks is a good looking production, and on the strength of this it looks as though the Beeb may well have drilled for oil but struck gold.” The Times review: “Last night’s episode of ‘Roughnecks’ was terrific.” “The cast is excellent.”
