Nighthawks (113 mins)

The first major British gay film, this study of a closeted schoolteacher who spends his nights cruising London’s gay clubs in search of Mr Right defies categorisation. Both a fascinating glimpse into the 1970s scene and a portrait of an ordinary gay man living in a homophobic society, Nighthawks subverts stereotypes, led by Ken Robertson’s strong, naturalistic performance.
