Distant Voices, Still Lives 15

Part of Members' Events
Terence Davies, UK, 1988, 84m.

This film was proposed by our member Greg Gordon, who writes: 'To mark Terence Davies passing this is arguably his best film. Set in 1950s Liverpool it recreates long lost working class lives, in all aspects. A wonderfully moving film.'

Siblings Maisie (Lorraine Ashbourne) and Tony (Dean Williams), along with their mother (Freda Dowie), gather for their sister Eileen's (Angela Walsh) wedding. It is a joyous occasion, but through flashbacks it becomes clear that the family was not always happy. Their father (Pete Postlethwaite) was physically abusive to his wife, and left the children emotionally traumatized. As a result, the children have grown into unhappy adults, looking for love they didn't receive when they were young.

Please note, the screening on Tuesday 7 November is our Free Members' Screening. The screening the following week, on Wednesday 15 November is a regular screening.
