1947 in a small town in England. The war has been won two years ago, but there’s still rationing of meat. When princess Elizabeth is going to marry, a group of businessmen wants to impress (or probably bribe) the local government by giving a big party. They want to slaughter an illegally raised pig for this event. Unfortunately someone steals the pig. —IMDb
Agreeable comedy of English class and attempted social one-upmanship. Bennett's script - his first for the cinema - is suitably peppered with mildly absurd situations and vinegary asides, but the whole thing is a little too complacent and lackadaisical in progression and could do with a swift kick up the britches to inject a little more vigour.
