A romantic comedy with a heart of gold but also passionate political force, Letter to Brezhnev is arguably the definitive Merseyside film. Two Liverpool lasses hook up with a pair of Russian sailors, only for their night of fun to turn serious when love beckons for one of the girls, and she begins to wonder if life might be better behind the Iron Curtain.

A film emboldened by the strength of its contrasts, Letter to Brezhnev combines its earthy humour with a bitter depiction of urban deprivation, illuminating the hope at the heart of a neglected city and imparting the belief that human contact can counteract the prejudices of international politics.
