Originally released for the cinema in 1962 The L Shaped Room stars Leslie Caron, Leslie Claire Margaret Caron, a French actress who appeared in 45 films between 1951 and 2003. Her most famous role was probably that of GIGI in the musical of the same title. Also look out for appearances by Tom Bell, Bernard Lee, Patricia Phoenix, Emlyn Williams and Brock Peters.
The film follows the fortunes of Jane, Leslie Caron, a somewhat shy French girl who happens to be single and pregnant. Jane moves into a low rent boarding house in London where she meets and befriends the other residents, one way and another!. Her relationship with these very different characters helps Jane to grow in confidence and embrace the start of the swinging 60s and the sexual revolution but; doubts about her baby and their future linger. What exactly will this newly liberated single decide to do?.
