The L-Shaped Room (1963) Film Review

The L-Shaped Room
DIRECTOR: Bryan Forbes
BOTTOM LINE: Writer/director Bryan Forbes’s lovely and faithful adaptation of the Lynne Reid Banks novel boasts Leslie Caron’s greatest performance. She is a young woman who is unmarried and waits out pregnancy in a strange city where she rents the L-shaped bedroom of the title. Brock Peters having just appeared in “To Kill a Mockingbird” plays Johnny, a shy, gay musician while Cicely Courtneidge is perfect as her understanding landlady, Mavis, who we gradually realize is not only gay but is in mourning for a lost love
