Worth a Watch: The White Bus

Published: Thu Jul 24 2014

The White Bus is a short (well, short when compared to Lord of the Rings) film directed by Lindsay Anderson. Based on a short story by Shelagh Delaney, it tells the slightly bizarre tale of a suicidal office worker who leaves London life for a bus ride around Manchester. It’s hardly the most invigorating 45 minutes by today’s standards, but if you’ve ever wondered what Hulme and Kersal looked like in the ‘60s (and who hasn’t?), then it’s definitely worth a watch.
