The Killing of Sister George (1968)
Directed by Robert Aldrich (his favorite of his own films)
Beryl Reid, Susannah York, Coral Browne. An aging actress’s life falls apart as she loses first her job in a TV soap series and then her young lover.
“Excellent…controversial…flawless acting… one of the few films not only to address lesbianism but to present it in an honest, non-exploitative fashion”-DVDVerdict.com
“Exceptionally black comedy…Reid’s performance is riveting…-brightlights.film.com
“Little-seen but oft-cited film in the queer canon…its depiction of pre-stonewall culture… still packs a subversive punch 40 years after its release”-cinemaretro.com
