Synopsis

In early 20th-century rural Scotland, young Chris Guthrie dreams of becoming a teacher but is held back by a brutal, religious father and her love of the land. But her new marriage and whole way of life are threatened by the outbreak of World War I, encroaching on her world.

Our take

Caught in a tumultuous tug-of-war between familial strictures and artistic desires, Agyness Deyn is a heart-wrenching presence in Terence Davies’s epic passion project. Under the looming shadow of WWI, the raw landscape of rural Scotland harbors both breathtaking beauty and unimaginable hardships.
