Sunset Song


Stranger Says:

After making his name with semi-autobiographical tales of provincial life in post-war Britain, Liverpool-born auteur Terence Davies shifted his gaze to literary properties about strong-willed women living in impossible times, like Lily Bart in The House of Mirth. That description fits Agyness Deyn's Chris Guthrie, the heroine of Lewis Grassic Gibbon's 1932 novel, a farm girl in World War I-era Scotland who longs to teach rather than to become a broodmare like her mother. Her father is a brute and war is hell, but the land sustains her like no man can, resulting in Davies's most hopeful film to date. (KATHY FENNESSY)
