Truly, Madly, Deeply

truly_madly_deeplyIn memory of the late Alan Rickman, this month we will be showing one of his early film appearances.

Directed by the late Anthony Minghella and starring Alan Rickman, Juliet Stevenson, Michael Maloney and Deborah Findlay, “Truly Madly Deeply” is a romantic comedy drama which explores love and bereavement.

Nina is beside herself with grief at the recent death of her boyfriend, Jamie, a cellist.   When she is on the verge of despair, Jamie reappears as a “ghost” and the couple are reconciled. The screenplay never clarifies whether this occurs in reality, or merely in Nina’s imagination. Nina is ecstatic, but Jamie’s behaviour – turning up the central heating to stifling levels, moving furniture around and inviting back “ghost friends” to watch videos – gradually infuriates her, and their relationship deteriorates. She meets Mark, a psychologist, to whom she is attracted, but she is unwilling to become involved with him because of Jamie’s continued presence. Nina continues to love Jamie but is conflicted by his self-centred behaviour and ultimately wonders out loud, “Was it always like this?

Sunset Song


Based on the classic 1932 Scottish novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbon, the  film tells the story of  Aberdeenshire farm girl Chris Guthrie,  played by Agyness Deyn, as she searches for her independence against the odds.  It is a classic rite of passage story illustrating a way of life in remote Scotland coming to a close in the wake of the First World War.

Featuring Peter Mullan (Shallow Grave; Trainspotting; Bravehart, The Children of Men; War Horse) the film was recently recommended by BBC News Film as one of the top releases for 2016.
