Distant Voices, Still Lives

Tony (Dean Williams) lives with his sisters Maisie (Lorraine Ashbourne) and Eileen (Angela Walsh) in a terraced house with their careworn mam (Freda Dowie) and volatile dad (Pete Postlethwaite). Their lives are typical of the period, with women bonding together but frequently oppressed by their menfolk. If that sounds grim, it is and it isn’t, rather this is a film rich in reality, latching on to the highs and lows – which is, of course, why the incidents are memorable.
