The Queen of Sheba's Pearls
Set in post-war England, this moving film charts the education of young Jack in the wake of the death of his beloved mother Emily on his eighth birthday.

On the eve of Jack's sixteenth birthday, in 1952, a stranger appears at the door - a very beautiful, enigmatic Swedish woman whose appearance bears a striking and discomforting similarity to his dead mother.

Colin Nutley directs Swedish star Helena Bergstrom (his real-life wife) in this poignant tale of a young man's coming of age.
