SUNSET SONG

A FILM BY TERENCE DAVIES

BASED ON THE CLASSIC NOVEL BY LEWIS GRASSIC GIBBON

AGYNESS DEYN NOMINATED FOR MOST PROMISING NEWCOMER, BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM AWARDS

Told with gritty poetic realism by Britain’s greatest living auteur, Terence Davies, SUNSET SONG laments the devastation of war and pays fine tribute to the endurance of the land. Set in a rural Scottish community, SUNSET SONG is driven by the young heroine Chris (Agyness Deyn) and her intense passion for life, the unsettled Ewan (Kevin Guthrie) and for the unforgiving land. The impact of the First World War is felt from afar, bringing the rapidly changing modern world to bear on this community in the harshest possible way.  Yet, in a final moment of grace, Chris endures the great hardships. Now a woman of remarkable strength, she is able to draw from the ancient land in looking to the future.  SUNSET SONG is an epic in emotional scale and deeply romantic at its core.
