John Moulder Brown gets That Sinking Feeling for Jane Asher
Cute working class fifteen-year-old John Moulder-Brown (as Mike) gets a job an attendant in a London bathhouse and falls "head-over-heels" in love with his co-worker, sexy red-haired Jane Asher (as Sue). He meets "ladies of a certain age," like overweight Diana Dors, "who favours young boys" - but, Mr. Moulder-Brown can't stop fantasizing about the delectable Ms. Asher; she was the inspiration for many of The Beatles' love songs, "And I Love Her"...
"Deep End" is an imaginatively shot, by Jerzy Skolimowski with Charly Steinberger, story involving obsessive teenage love, with Moulder-Brown very effectively essaying the "mature for his age" protagonist. You also get a good look at Ms. Asher as an actress, which she was before achieving world-wide fame as a Paul McCartney's first significant relationship. The film's ending is somewhat disappointing; it certainly could have been more... electric.
