Film version of TV's Gentle comedy from yesteryear.
The lovers is the film version of Jack Rosenthals early 70s comedy series. The late great Richard Beckinsale and pretty and very talented Paula Wilcox play the title Lovers Geoffrey and Beryl . Two innocents slowly falling in and out love in the heady world of attempted promiscuity of early 70s Britain.. Both are from similar backgrounds and both slightly out of steps with there friends love lives. What I love about this film is that its wonderfully low key and strikes a chord with anyone of a certain age who has genuinely been in love.. The writing is very funny and honest. As you'd expect, The performances are brilliant all round. As in the series Beckinsales Geoffrey is shy and awkward andunsure of what he wants in life and looking for sex but also scared of the outcome. Wilcox's Beryl is a good girl look for a good man and hardly admitting that awkward Geoffrey is her type but need work. Add to this complication from the world around them and you have romantic 70s comic gold. I recommend this as a glimpse into simpler times. Love and laughter can be clever and tender without being crude or gross.
