Contemporary British Social Realist Film 23 It is also interesting to note that running through Linebaugh’s writings is a stress on an ethic of working class solidarity, sustained in the teeth of the manifold brutalities of the long development of capitalism. To take an example of a significant social realist film that might respond to an interpretation informed by Linebaugh’s work, let us briefly consider Nil by Mouth (1997).
