Watch: First Trailer for Terence Davies' Period Drama 'Sunset Song'
"I am not frightened of you!" The official UK trailer has debuted for Terence Davis' new period romantic drama Sunset Song, about a daughter of a Scottish farmer coming of age during the early 1900s. Agyness Deyn stars as Chris Guthrie, and it's told as a sort of a triptych, with one segment focusing on her abusive father, the next when she meets and falls in love and eventually marries Ewan, played by Kevin Guthrie; finally, he goes off to fight in World War I and comes back shellshocked and violent, resembling her father. The cast includes Peter Mullan, Jack Greenlees, Niall Greig Fulton and Ian Pirie. This looks very powerful.
The daughter of a Scottish farmer comes of age in the early 1900s.

Sunset Song is both written and directed by English filmmaker Terence Davies, of The Deep Blue Sea, Of Time and the City, The House of Mirth, The Neon Bible, The Long Day Closes previously. The film just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this year and also played at the London Film Festival.
