'I'm Just Confused by Candles and Prayers': Love, Loss and Longing in British Film Part II

For the next in my series of meditations on love, loss and longing in British film, I thought I would return to some earlier thoughts about Two a Penny and Privilege, two films both released in 1967.  I have always been taken with the thought of placing these two films alongside each other and seeing whether or not this produces anything interesting in relation to issues that they may be addressing or, and perhaps more importantly, how these two views of a similar theme diverge.
