Sunset Song takes place during the early years of the 20th 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, the film is driven by the young heroine Chris and her intense passion for life, for the unsettling Ewan and for the unforgiving land.”
This is the first I’ve heard of the movie—or to be honest, the book—but IndieWire promises the film ‘weaves together poetic drama and strong character work’. And you know how I love a good period drama.
Sunset Song comes out in the US on May 13th.
