Description by OLDIES.com:
A brutal lower-class Irishman, Michael Marler (played by Nicol Williamson, Hamlet, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution) has clawed his way to success. An ambitious man with an important job - but a boss he hates - and a wealthy wife (Ann Bell, To Sir, with Love), Marler is absolutely ruthless when it comes to getting what he wants. He returns to Liverpool, and upon hearing his father's recent death was the result of being attacked by a Teddy Boy, Marler, more vicious than ever, is intent on revenge. Directed by Jack Gold (The National Health), the film takes on class and social ills in 1960s London and Liverpool, in a deeply penetrating drama with excellent performances. Newly remastered.
Nicol Williamson stars as a Liverpool/Irish layabout who inherits a business from his father. Even in his executive togs, Williamson remains out of step with society. Already a surly sort, Williamson becomes even less likeable as the film progresses, especially when seeking to avenge a long-ago slight against his father. The film is a belated but still compelling entry in Britain's "Angry Young Man" cinematic cycle, with the "protagonist" remaining on top at the expense of his soul. RECKONING was based on THE HARP THAT ONCE, a novel by Patrick Hall.
