Talking Pictures: The Long Day Closes

Remembering the life and work of British filmmaker Terence Davies

A lyrical reverie about a young Liverpool boy coming of age in the 1950s among his loving family and the austere Catholic Church as he enters the rigors of school, nurtures a bedazzled love of the movies and longs for companionship.

Part of our Talking Pictures series. Stay for a post-screening discussion with local filmmaker Terrance Odette and film programmer Wendy Guymer-Tutt!

"A masterpiece." - Chicago Reader

"[An] exquisite, impressionistic, largely autobiographical reverie ..." - Richard Brody, New Yorker

"The Long Day Closes is essentially Davies's distilled recollection of himself at 11, a seemingly friendless child in a dismal working-class Liverpool, transfixed by his experience of the cinema." - The New York Review of Books
