Plot: During the height of the swinging 1960s, John Schlesinger's DARLING was one of the rare critiques of the frivolous behavior that characterized British films of the time. This black-and-white movie features a terrific cast led by Julie Christie in perhaps her greatest performance. The superficiality of her character makes a satirical statement about the vapid qualities of the era's youth audience.

DARLING is a stern satire that depicts the social climb of Diana Scott (Christie), a young woman who drifts from man to man on her way to stardom in the worlds of modeling and acting. First, as her teenage marriage crumbles, Diana falls hard for television interviewer Robert (Dirk Bogarde). She leaves her husband and moves in with him only to meet the smooth Miles (Laurence Harvey), who knows all the right people in the film industry. But Miles is merely another stepping stone as Diana climbs in and out of bed on her way to the top, creating a life that bores her even more than the existence she originally sought to escape.
