Hobson's Choice

David Lean Regno Unito, 1954

HP Hovercraft's rating of the film Hobson il tiranno

The bleak industrial wastes of Salford, North England serve as the backdrop for this hilarious and touching comedy. Brilliant performances and characterizations, especially Charles Laughton who turns out to be a gifted physical comic as well as thespian. David Lean was truly a versatile genius.
