THE LONG DAY CLOSES is the most gloriously cinematic expression of the unique sensibility of Terence Davies (DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES; THE DEEP BLUE SEA), widely celebrated as Britain's greatest living filmmaker. Bursting with both enchantment and melancholy, this autobiographical film takes on the perspective of a quiet boy growing up lonely in Liverpool in the 1950s. But rather than employ a straightforward narrative, Davies jumps in and out of time, swoops into fantasies and fears, summons memories and dreams. A singular filmic tapestry, THE LONG DAY CLOSES is an evocative, movie and music-besotted portrait of the artist as a young man.
