Akenfield is a film made by Peter Hall in 1974, based loosely upon the book Akenfield: Portrait of an English Village by Ronald Blythe (1969). It can claim a degree of cult status as a work of rural realism, unusual in relation to East Anglia (which is often misrepresented in the media by 'Mummerset' accents and other falsifications). Ronald Blythe himself has a cameo role as the vicar and all other parts are played by real-life villagers.[1]
