(Jack Gold, 1970)
Release date: 28 August 2017 (OOP date: 23 October 2021)
Dual Format Limited Edition (Blu-ray premiere / UK DVD premiere)
A ruthless business executive (an intense tour de force performance by leading man Nicol Williamson) returns home to his Liverpool roots to investigate his father’s death. An unflinching exploration of the British class system, Jack Gold's penetrating, brutal drama stands alongside contemporary classics Up the Junction and Room at the Top, and pre-dates Get Carter by a year. Underrated and underexposed, The Reckoning may well be one of the most essential British films ever made. Available for the first time ever in the UK.
