The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer

Directed by Kevin Billington
1971    1h 34m    R
Fresh-faced young Michael Rimmer worms his way into an opinion poll company and is soon running the place. He uses this as a springboard to get into politics, and in the mini-skirted, flared-trousered world of 1970 Britain, he starts to rise through the Tory ranks.
