The Whales of August Film Poster


Lindsay Anderson directs this 1980s drama following two sisters who return to the small Maine island where they used to spend summers when they were children. Bette Davies and Lillian Gish star as Libby Strong and Sarah Webber, a pair of widows who are drawn to each other's company and the island by loneliness. Libby is in poor health and spirits, but Sarah is enlivened by the company of a Russian fisherman (Vincent Price) and the memory of spotting whales from the island's cliffs.
