Andrew McCarthy and Rob Lowe are friends from different ends of the social spectrum in this Brat Pack retread of The Graduate played against the backdrop of a poncey private school, with Jacqueline Bisset as a bored WASP MILF. Nothing of note.
The Day After
American when-the-bomb-drops pre/post-apocalyptic TVM, not exactly Threads or The War Game, but it’s alright.
Tight little TVM about the 1964 betting scandal which saw a number of professional footballers disgraced, efficiently directed by a pre-Hollywood Paul Greengrass, with effective performances from Jason Isaacs and Steve Coogan.
Sweet little TVM about a group of misfits studying to become London cabbies, written by Jack Rosenthal, with Mick Ford, Kim Taylforth (sister of Gillian) and Nigel Hawthorne most notable.
