The Terence Davies Trilogy

Unclassified 18+ Scroll to content

A melancholy portrait of human dignity, this elegiac film is profoundly moving in its attention to the emotional tenor of events and the portrait of a man in close-up.

This debut feature intimately weaves memories and anecdotes while presenting an unsentimental reckoning of Davies’ homosexuality and Catholicism, providing the starting point for the semi-autobiographical themes that permeate his subsequent work.

With Wilfrid Brambell.
