The Lovers! - Preview

The Lovers!

Preview by Jack Foley

RICHARD Beckinsale (Rising Damp, Porridge) and Paula Wilcox (Man About The House, Life After Birth) star in the feature film of the TV series which made them household names, The Lovers! (12).

The film sees Geoffrey Scrimshaw and Beryl Battersby as a hesitant and inexperienced young couple attempting the negotiate the sexual minefield of the ‘permissive’ society in 1970s Manchester.

This big-screen transfer of Jack Rosenthal’s hugely likeable sitcom sees old-fashioned girl Beryl continuing to slap down the advances of her frustrated boyfriend, whose clumsy attempts to initiate ‘Percy Filth’ suggest he’s not quite up to speed himself!

The Lovers! is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
