Overview

In recent years the role and identity of British cinema has undergone numerous changes and this book traces the ways in which British society, the British film industry, and British films have interacted in the 1980s. Hill traces the response of British filmmaking to the increasing domination of Hollywood, examines the kinds of images British cinema has produced in this period and how they relate to the shifting sense of "British" identity, and looks closely at a number of films and genres to provide a definitive study of this important period.

Editorial Reviews

Robert Buss
HIll's discussion of this genre (if it can be called one) is balanced and sensible, pointing out that the relation of these films to the past and to their audience is a good deal more complex than some writers have supposed, not least because many of the films are literary adaptations.
—From The Times Literary Supplement.
