As part of our celebration of poets, their works and their lives we are pleased to screen Glenda Jackson's Stevie, adapted from Hugh Whitemore's play about the life of Stevie Smith.
While the print of the film is showing its age, Stevie nonetheless a classic of its time, featuring Mona Washbourne, Alec McCowen and Trevor Howard.
Stevie, in Miss Jackson's splendid performance, is funny, fragile, demanding, suicidal, brave and never at a loss for the kind of words that light up the conventional world she clung to, even as those words turn the world upside down.
