In the first film of Terence Davies’s autobiographical trilogy of shorts, his alter ego Robert Tucker reflects on his youth, remembering the bullying he experienced in his rigid Catholic school and the death of his abusive father. Suffused with the longing and loneliness of queer outsiderhood, THE TERENCE DAVIES TRILOGY display the impressionistic visual style and piercing emotional sensitivity that would make Davies one of the great cinematic poets of our time.
