Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Originally published under the title Twenty Thousand Streets in 1935, author Patrick Hamilton's semi-autobiographical trilogy is adapted for the screen by director Simon Curtis and screenwriter Kevin Elyot. The story is set in and around The Midnight Bell, a public house off the Euston Road. There, a bartender named Bob pines for pretty prostitute Jenny, despite the sad fact that she has not a penny to her name. Meanwhile, Bob remains blissfully unaware of the romantic glimpses cast his way by co-worker Ella, who is currently being courted by an older, wealthier gentleman, and desperate local Jenny struggles to keep her head about water after being forced out on the streets by circumstance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
