I've just seen An Inspector Calls for the first time and found it very enjoyable. The ending was a bit of a surprise.
The Birlings, a rich English family are having dinner one evening when a copper calls round to see them and tell them about a girl who has just been found dead. At first, they deny they knew her but each member of the family did know her and had a different connection with her. These include being a former lover and a former employee. Later on, we learn the truth and there is something strange about the Inspector...
The Inspector is played brilliantly by the great Alastair Sim (Scrooge) and the rest of the cast includes Arthur Young and Brian Forbes.
This is a must see, especially for old movie fans. Brilliant.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
