Nighthawks is the story of Jim, a geography teacher at a London comprehensive school. Living alone in a cramped flat, his sexuality a half-open secret to everyone but his pupils and his parents, he spends the evenings at gay bars and discos looking vainly for ‘Mr. Right’.

Hugely controversial on its initial release, Nighthawks was one of the first British movies to accurately depict the life of a gay man in London.
