Sunset Song (15)
Thu 01 Jan 1970 - Thu 01 Jan 1970
UK, Luxembourg, 2015. 135 mins. Dir. Terence Davies
Ravishing, tremulous and deeply felt, Sunset Song is the latest film from British screenwriter, novelist and director Terence Davies (Of Time and the City, The Deep Blue Sea).
Adapted by Lewis Grassic Gibbons classic novel, its set in coastal Aberdeenshire on the eve of World War I. Former supermodel Agyness Deyn (Electricity) gives an excellent performance as Chris Guthrie, the teenage daughter in a farming family ruled by an oppressive, violent father (Peter Mullan); and when tragedy strikes, she finds a curious liberty in the dissolution of their dysfunctionally tight-knit family.
