An alert from Buxton, UK:
5th annual Buxton Film Festival, 2017
Monday 10th April
2.00 pm
Installation of plaque to commemorate director Robert Stevenson in the Pavilion Gardens – generously donated by Unsworth’s Memorials.
2.30 pm
Jane Eyre (PG)
Dir. Robert Stevenson 1943 USA, 97 mins
Our Festival opens with what is still one of the best Brontë screen adaptations. Directed by Buxton-born Robert Stevenson, with a script co-written by Aldous Huxley and starring Joan Fontaine and Orson Welles (look out for a young Elizabeth Taylor who is not credited). Jane Eyre remains a compelling gothic literary landmark – much, much more than a love story.
This event is supported by Film Hub North West Central proud to be a member of the BFI Film Audience Network
