Morvern Callar

When: Thu., March 5, 7-9 p.m. 2020

The first in our Female Auteurs film series begins with "Morvern Callar," a moody and mysterious character study from 2002 that was directed and co-written by Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here, We Need to Talk About Kevin). Ramsay is a poetic visual stylist who excels at using small details to convey the inner worlds of her characters. In Morvern Callar, Ramsay finds a perfect match in Samantha Morton, who portrays the title character with mesmerizing depth and subtlety. Who is Morvern, and what is she thinking? To find out, you’ll have to watch (and listen) closely. (97 mins)
