Distant Voices, Still Lives (Blu-ray) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Terence Davies film, depicting life in working-class Liverpool from the 1940s into the 50s, is 30 years old this year, and already a modern classic. Now that Eileen, Maisie, and Tony are adults, their childhood memories and in particular those associated with their father are inconsistent. While Eileen clings to happier times, her siblings remember his brutal violent nature, which has been a major influence on their growth and development. This troubled family must deal with the day-to-day alongside their past. Terence Davies creates a loving portrait with this partly... autobiographical tale (shot in two sections), and it was voted one of the greatest British films by Sight and Sound. Distant Voices, Still Lives has been restored in 4K resolution by the BFI under the supervision and approval of director Terence Davies.
