Ahead of its UK release next month, a trailer has arrived online for Terence Davies’ upcoming drama Sunset Song which stars Agyness Deyn, Peter Mullan and Kevin Guthrie. Watch it below after the official synopsis…
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 community, Sunset Song is driven by the young heroine Chris and her intense passion for life, for the unsettling Ewan 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, yet in a final moment of grace, Chris endures, now a woman of remarkable strength who is able to draw from the ancient land in looking to the future.
Sunset Song is set for release on December 4th in the UK.
