- Frank Machin a miner, lodges with a widow, Mrs. Hammond. His competitive nature and powerful physique cause him to join the local rugby team and, as his career progresses, so too his brutal nature distances him from those around him. Success – and perhaps a new sense of insecurity – seems to make Frank harsher and cruder...
Richard Harris gives a career-best performance as the brutal Frank Machin, strongly supported by Rachel Roberts as the bitter Mrs. Hammond, both of whom received Oscar nominations, with Roberts winning the BAFTA for Best British Actress. David Storey’s compelling script was also BAFTA nominated, while director Lindsay Anderson was nominated for the Golden Palm for his unflinching look at working-class life set in the bleak landscape of Northern England.
Presented in its original widescreen aspect ratio, This Sporting Life has been digitally restored especially for this DVD release.
