Directed by Jack Clayton

Leading the British New Wave, Room at the Top brings together questions of class struggle, romance, and the punishing consequences of uninhibited ambition. The film tells the story of Joe Lampton (Laurence Harvey) and his push-and-pull romance between Alice (Simone Signoret) and Susan (Heather Sears) that reflects Joe’s struggle to negotiate a path to upward mobility—by any means necessary. Testing the boundaries of seduction, sexual attraction, and adultery shown on screen, Room at the Top blends tragedy and romance in a gritty tale of ambition gone wrong.
