Competition: Win ‘The L-Shaped Room’ on Blu-ray

Based on the hugely successful novel by Lynne Reid Banks, Bryan Forbes’ The L-Shaped Room is a true British classic, starring Tom Bell, Brock Peters and an Academy Award nominated Leslie Caron.

To celebrate the newly restored Blu-ray and DVD editions of the film, out now courtesy of Studiocanal’s Vintage Classics series, we have 3 x Blu-ray copies to give away.

 Caron portrays Jane, a young pregnant French girl who moves to a seedy boarding house in London for a new start. Beautiful and withdrawn, Jane slowly gets to know the other residents of the house who, like her, are social outsiders in their own way.

As she falls into a relationship with Toby (Bell) a struggling young writer who lives on the first floor, and befriends Johnny (Peters) a black jazz musician, Jane finds a new reason to live.

She considers getting an abortion, but is unhappy with this solution. Eventually she comes to like her odd L-Shaped room, but still faces two problems: what to do with her baby, and what to do with Toby.
