Overview

Lindsay Anderson, 1968, 111 min., 35mm

The cult classic that launched the career of Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), If... tells the tale of an armed rebellion at a traditional British school. Echoing the May 1968 student uprising in Paris, the story follows protagonist Mick Travis (McDowell), a nonconformist boy who rebels against authority and old traditions. Centered around the polarizing issues of class and society, the school functions as a microcosm of British society.
