The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne 08/03/19
Someone save Judith Hearne, for she can’t save herself. Jack Clayton’s film of Brian Moore’s novel has stunning performances by Maggie Smith and Bob Hoskins — but whew, for many of us its social cruelties will feel like traumatic emotional abuse. Not enough nasty people and clueless victims in your life? … this show will give you your fill. It all feels true to life, however. With Wendy Hiller, Marie Kean, Ian McNeice and Prunella Scales; filmed in Dublin. On Region B Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
