Movie Diary 7/1/2015

The Brave Don’t Cry (Philip Leacock, 1952). Strong dose of British Realism, all about a mining disaster in a Scots town and its tense aftermath. The terse approach suits the subject, making the occasional lyricism – weary miners break out in a folk song as they wait in their underground tomb – all the more charged. Executive produced by John Grierson. (Seen at the Edinburgh Filmhouse as part of the Edinburgh Film Festival.)
