Plot Sypnosis:

Winner of the International Critics Prize at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival, Terence Davies feature debut heralded one of Britain s finest filmmaking talents.

Loosely based on the director s own family and upbringing, Distant Voices, Still Lives presents an evocative account of working-class life in Liverpool, England during the 1940s and 50s. Births, marriages and deaths and an expressive use of music provide the underpinning for a film that is beautiful, heartbreaking, resonant but never sentimental.

Now regarded as a masterpiece of British cinema, and boasting a startling performance from Pete Postlethwaite (Romeo + Juliet, Inception) as the head of the family, Distant Voices, Still Lives has been treated to a glorious 4K restoration by the British Film Institute.
