Rita, Sue and Bob Too movie sceneThe 1987 British comedy Rita, Sue and Bob Too by esteemed cult director Alan Clarke makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy of Twilight Time.

The movie is a sex farce and then some: a biting critique of Britain’s Thatcher years’ society that blends horror and humor to shattering effect. The story of two teenagers (played by Downton Abbey’s Siobhan Finneran, and Michelle Holmes) who enter into a sexual misalliance with a married man (George Costigan), the film paints a grisly but amusing picture of misspent British youth in an age devoid of dreams.

Special features on the Blu-ray include an isolated music & effects audio track, an audio commentary with film historians Julie Kirgo and Nick Redman, and liner notes by Kirgo.

Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, the time to pre-order your Blu-ray discs directly from distributor Screen Archives is NOW!
