Being a Battersea lad in the 60's this film brings back long lost forgotten memories.
Based on Nell Dunn's iconic tale of life in London's swinging sixties and released for the very first time on DVD , Up The Junction is an unforgettable classic of British cinema. Starring Suzy Kendall as Polly and Dennis Waterman as her hard-up boyfriend Peter, it is the tale of a young, well-heeled party girl who, bored with her affluent Chelsea lifestyle, moves to the industrialised and considerably less well to-do area of Battersea. In search of realism, Polly takes a factory job where she meets sisters Rube (Adrienne Posta) and Sylvie (Maureen Lipman). But she soon discovers the seedier side of life in an impoverished world of crime, desperation and questionable morality. A side of life that everyone, but Polly, is desperately trying to leave behind.
