Sunset Song

British filmmaker Terence Davies trains his luminous and lamentful eye on rural Scotland in this sweeping saga of a young farmer’s daughter (Mancunian model Agyness Deyn) who must survive familial and wartime conflict. With trademark scope and sensitivity, Davies delivers an almost Shakespearean tragedy of love, labour and loss.
