About the Movie
Billy Fisher is a lazy, wildly inventive and irresponsible clerk in a North Country town, who defrauds his employers of the petty cash. Unable to accept the drab reality of life, Billy escapes into a world of fantasy, imagining he is a successful man of the world in various situations. Communication at home is uneasy; his inexplicable lying shocks his parents. But when he becomes engaged to two girls at the same time and invents a demand for his non-existent writing talents, his troubles become more complex. That is, until he meets Liz, a beautiful and understanding girl, who appreciates the creative instincts hidden behind his dreams.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: One of the great movies of the 1960's.
Fresh: It's the director's most assured work, and it includes Courtenay's greatest performance. The young actor balances zestiness and frustration, levity and rage, and never soft-pedals his character's more unsympathetic tendencies.
waste of your time
