All That Heaven Allows. The Screen at Contemporary: Christmas Special

At Nottingham Contemporary


The Screen at Contemporary presents its winter 2018 film season, Funny Girl. This season we explore outspoken, quietly rebellious, sometimes nasty and subversive female characters. Join us for this Christmas Special.

An upper-class widow falls for her gardener in mid-fifties suburbia. Discounted as a film for women in its era, Sirk’s films are now celebrated as a teller of subtlety subversive women that quietly disrupt and disobey. Sirk signature sumptuous Technicolor rendering of this era is Hollywood melodrama at its finest.
