featuring a lecture by Lee Gambin

William Wyler | USA | | Unclassified (15+)
Film & Talk

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.
