Kitchen Sink Realism

Kitchen Sink Realism describes a British cultural movement of social realism that came about during the late 1950s and early 1960s. The movement produced theater, television plays, and other art, alongside a handful of remarkable films, many based on plays and novels by the working-class writers of the movement. These films illuminated various social problems, providing authentic depictions of the urban working class’s “angry young men,” disillusioned women, and angst-ridden youth. Curated by Lindsey Campbell.
