This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

Lillian Hellman’s tragic play comes to life for the silver screen and showcases one of the most heartbreaking performances put to film by Shirley MacLaine. A child’s lie (or is it?) destroys the lives of two respectable young women in this breathtaking tear jerker.

This session includes a lecture by Lee Gambin on lesbian representation in cinema of the 1920s–60s.
