Synopsis

Terence Davies directs this autobiographical portrait of working class family life in post-war Liverpool. Told in flashback and set to an evocative soundtrack, the film explores the emotional fallout of a family dominated by an overtly cruel father (Pete Postlethwaite) and follows the repercussions, including failed marriages, that the relentless abuse visits on the various family members as they attempt to lead a life away from the family unit.
