Directed by Desmond Davis • 1964 • United Kingdom
Starring Rita Tushingham, Peter Finch, Lynn Redgrave
Wonderfully tender, fresh, and full of lyricism and life, this offbeat romance follows the young Kate Brady (Rita Tushingham) as she leaves behind her sheltered existence in the Irish countryside and moves to Dublin. There, she finds unexpected love with Eugene Gaillard (Peter Finch), an older, married writer and intellectual who is charmed by the innocent girl. But can two such very different people really make it work? Edna O’Brien adapted her own novel for the screen, while Lynn Redgrave contributes a delightful performance as Kate’s world-wise roommate.
