The 77-year-old British screenwriter and director Terence Davies died


It is reported BBC.

British screenwriter and director Terence Davies, known for such films as “Distant Voices, Frozen Lives” and “Quiet Passion”, died at the age of 77 after a short illness.

He established himself with a trilogy of films such as Children, Madonna and Child, and Death and Transfiguration in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

His latest work, the Netflix drama Benedict, starring Slow Horse actor Jack Lowden and Doctor Who’s Peter Capaldi, explores the life of war poet Siegfried Sassoon.

In 2016, “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon played poet Emily Dickinson in “A Quiet Passion,” which Davis wrote and directed.

He won the International Critics’ Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for Distant Voices, Cut Lives, based on his memories of life in Liverpool in the 1940s and 1950s. Davis also spoke of the film as one of his most personal because it tells the story of his family.

His other films include the 2000 adaptation of Edith Wharton’s Fun House, starring Sex Education star Gillian Anderson as socialite Lily Bart, and the 2011 adaptation of Terence Rattigan’s play Deep Blue Sea, starring Rachel Weisz.

For reference: Born and raised in Liverpool, Davis often has an autobiographical element to his work. In particular, Davies worked for 10 years as a clerk in a transport company and as an accountant in an auditing firm before entering the Coventry Theater School in 1973.

  • On the morning of Sunday, October 8, it became known about the death of the prominent Ukrainian singer and actress Nina Matvienko. She was 75 years old.
