After an exciting premiere today by Velo, we are once again teaming up with a great group of people but not for a musical premiere but to give a lucky winner the chance to enjoy, along with a loved one, Terrence Davies’ new stunning amazing movie Sunset Song on their theatrical run in Toronto. Just retweet or share the post and the first one would win a pair of tickets for the film.
Following its World Premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and subsequent festival run, Unobstructed View Inc. (formerly Video Services Corp.) releases SUNSET SONG, the latest film by acclaimed British director Terence Davies (The Deep Blue Sea, The House of Mirth), in theatres across Canada. This adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s novel of the same title, widely regarded as one of the most important Scottish novels of the last century, features stunning cinematography and a heart-wrenching central performance by Agyness Deyn (Pusher). Watch the trailer here.
The film takes place during the early years of the twentieth century, with the conflicts and choices a young woman experiences reflecting the struggle between tradition and change – a struggle that continues to resonate today.
Set in a rural Scottish community, SUNSET SONG is driven by the young heroine Chris (Deyn) and her intense passion for life, for the unsettling Ewan (Kevin Guthrie) and for the unforgiving land. The First World
War reaches out from afar, bringing the modern world to bear on the community in the harshest possible way. The film also features a harrowing performance by established British actor Peter Mullan (Olive Kitteridge, Top of the Lake, War Horse).
Director Davies has won awards internationally throughout his career for films including Children, Madonna and Child, and Death and Transfiguration, which became known as his trilogy; Distant Voices, Still Lives, which won the International Critics Prize at the Cannes Film Festival; The Long Day Closes; The Neon Bible; and an adaptation of Edith Wharton’s novel The House of Mirth. His first documentary, which he also narrated, Of Time and the City, won the New York Film Critics Circle Prize for Best Documentary in 2009. Recently he directed The Deep Blue Sea, adapted from Terence Rattigan’s play and starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston.
