This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book examines the significant and innovative role played by three distinctive generic forms in British cinema during the decade of the 1990s. It focuses on the three generic strands that share a common interest in issues of identity, and a person's relationship to his or her family, place of residence and position in society, and are also linked by their shared tendency to seek out instances of humour, farce and irony in the various narrative scenarios as they unfold. The book demonstrates that important links can be made between films produced within very distinct periods of British film history. It also demonstrates that British cinema has often returned to concerns around issues of community, and cultural, sexual and national identity, and treated these subjects in imaginative and thoughtful ways.
