"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.
Here's the first official trailer for Terence Davies' Sunset Song, from The Guardian (via The Film Stage):
The daughter of a Scottish farmer comes of age in the early 1900s. Terence Davies's adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbons's novel, first published in 1932, stars Agyness Deyn as Chris, a Scottish farm worker who sees family trauma merge into global catastrophe as the first world war devastates her village. 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. Sunset Song will be released in the UK this December, but doesn't have a US release date yet. Stay tuned for updates on this film's release.
Looks good. There is a long standing theory that women often inadvertently marry a man who has similar character traits of their fathers, so that they can try and fix them. Is it BS, maybe, but I'll be damned if I haven't seen it happen many times.

I remember reading this at school, but can't remember how it went. Agyness Deyn is doing quite well there with the voice, should be fun to hear all the bad Scottish accents.

I never read that story but I would love to change that plot and add some debauchery in it... Then it would be more watchable. Existing version seems boring as hell ...
