TIFF: Middle class has a 'cultural choke-hold' on UK film - BBC News
The middle class has a 'cultural choke-hold' on UK film production according to director Michael Caton-Jones, speaking at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“The films that really drive me mad are the posh films made by posh people about posh people,” he said.

Fuck yeah, Downton Abbey spin offs are rank. A load of emotionally repressed rich people eating and walking around gardens, with the occasional party. Kill me now.

Then you get the middle class well meaning types straight outta Oxford who make a films about working class people, which is what the bloke is on about, and they’re pretty grim too.
