Description:
Clapham Junction is a 2007 British television film, written by Kevin Elyot. Directed by Adrian Shergold, the film centers on the experiences of several gay men during a 36 hour period in the Clapham area of London and the consequences when their lives collide. It was first broadcast on Channel 4 on 22 July 2007, repeated on 1 September 2009, and later released on DVD, but only on Region 1.

Story

From a civil partnership ceremony to a heated dinner party, five stories are woven into London from school and work, to bars and clubs, during one hot summer’s night.

Information

The drama was shown as part of a short season by Channel 4 to mark the 40th anniversary of decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. The drama caused controversy and received a mixed reaction - particularly from gay viewers who felt it a negative portrayal of gay men, though some found it intelligent and thought-provoking. Producer Elinor Day stated in The Independent that the intention was to raise awareness of homophobia. Interviewed in The Telegraph, writer Kevin Elyot said he did not intend a drama that lectured viewers; “This film is absolutely not that. I never, ever – I hope – point the finger.”

Clapham Junction was inspired by the vicious murder of Jody Dobrowski that happened 14 October 2005 on Clapham Common (the character Alfie played by David Leon is based on the actual events).
