Home-Sunset Song Oct 17, 2016

“There are lovely things in the world; Lovely that do not endure … and all the lovelier for it.”

sunset-song-3

Chronicling the joys and sorrows of Chris Guthrie (Agyness Deyn), the daughter of a farming family in northeast Scotland, Sunset Song is an exquisitely shot meditation on a way of life that has disappeared into the mists of the past. Scratching a livelihood out of the harsh terrain, the Guthrie family cowers in obedient fear of its patriarch, a man prone to sudden and ferocious bursts of anger. Along with her brother Will, the beautiful and intelligent Chris dreams of freedom and escape.

Applying a lyrical “memory realism” style to the simultaneously stunning and forbidding rural landscape, Sunset Song makes every scene like something out of an Old Masters canvas.
