  The L-Shaped Room on Blu-ray, DVD and digital
  Single mother blues
  STUDIOCANAL are delighted to announce the release of a newly restored version of the British classic, THE L-SHAPED ROOM. Written and directed by Bryan Forbes (Whistle Down the Wind, The Stepford Wives, The Raging Moon), this bittersweet portrayal of the steamy side of life in 1960s London has been restored in 4K by Sony Pictures Entertainment In collaboration with the BFI's Unlocking Film Heritage Programme.

The restoration will receive its UK Premiere at The BFI London Film Festival on October 14 before being released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital download on November 27 as part of the Vintage Classics collection.

On its release in 1962, THE L-SHAPED ROOM attracted international acclaim for its star Leslie Caron (Gigi) who was awarded both a Golden Globe® and a BAFTA® for her portrayal of Jane. A young French woman pregnant with an illegitimate child, Jane arrives at her dingy Notting
Hill lodgings to have her child in secret but finds love and friendship among the assortment of outsiders living in the boarding house - all brought to life by Forbes' sensitive ear for dialogue. In addition to the especially moving Cicely Courtneidge (Along Came Sally) as a faded music hall star growing old alone and Pat Phoenix’s (Coronation St) portrayal of a tart with a heart, are Toby (Tom Bell, The Krays), a struggling young writer on the first floor who Jane falls for and Johnny (Brock Peters, To Kill a Mockingbird), a black jazzman rejected for more than his colour.
