One of the most popular films at the British box-office in 1948, It Always Rains on Sunday was shot in and around Bethnal Green in East London, capturing the immediate post-war actualities with an inspired authenticity, and thus gaining a place amongst the classics of poetic realism and British noir. Taking place over on Sunday, it tells a story of a beautiful Rose, stifled in a loveless marriage, whose life is confined to the kitchen where she looks after her older husband, as well as his two teenage daughters from a previous marriage. Rose’s life is turned upside down in a split of a second when her former lover, Tommy, a prison escapee and a dangerous criminal appears at her door step. As well as keeping the viewer on the edge of the seat, this criminal drama-romance beautifully captures the lives of the Bethnal Green inhabitants offering a charming glimpse into East London of the 1940s that no longer exists and yet is so recognisable till this day.
