Details

Bill Forsyth’s haunting, rigorously unsentimental adaptation of Marilynne Robinson’s novel is one of his greatest achievements. Set in the wintry landscapes of the Pacific Northwest during the 1950s, it captures the special bond between two sisters and their longing for normality from a world that only seems to offer the unpredictable. Abandoned by their mother, the girls grow apart as they are entrusted to the tender mercies of their eccentric, irresponsible Aunt Sylvie played by a captivating Christine Lahti. This is a rare opportunity to see Forsyth’s beautifully observed, bittersweet classic.
