Sunset Song

British filmmaker Terence Davies’s meditative musing on the outbreak and aftershock of World War I was inspired by Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s 1932 novel Sunset Song. With a backdrop of rural Kincardineshire in northeast Scotland (author Gibbon’s homeland), Davies’s stately adaptation, cloaked in his own preoccupations with memory and time, is a sensitive dramatization of one young woman’s life at the dawn of a gruesome and demoralizing century. (Terence Davies, 2015, DCP, 135 minutes).
