19. On The Waterfront
A man stands up against the unions.
What I thought
I liked the pigeons and the boats. There wasn't much else I liked though.
What Mum thought
First time for Mum. "This is precisely why we are doing this challenge. This was a brilliant film and I can't believe I'd not seen it before. An amazing cast with Marlon Brando, Eva Marie Saint... I think Karl Malden pretty much made the film for me, particularly his crucifixion speech. Acting, scripting, cinematography; everything is perfect."
What Dad thought
First time for Dad. "A thoroughly enjoyable underdog story. Good acting, good script. One to watch again."
