CC Baxter (Lemmon) sublets his bachelor pad to his philandering boss (MacMurray), only to regret it when Sheldrake gets designs on elfin elevator girl Miss Kubelik (MacLaine). Wilder and Diamond's breezy, sardonic approach to themes of infidelity and adultery ensure that the film shines as brightly as ever.

Newly widowed Newcastle joiner Daniel (Johns) has worked all his life, but when his doctor tells him that his heart condition means he can't work, the welfare system disagrees. Familiar territory for Loach and screenwriter Laverty but despite unapologetic heartstring-tugging, the subject – the system's intrinsic cruelty and unfairness – is sadly more relevant than ever.
