Movie Info

Stevie is not a he but a she--famed British poet Stevie Smith. As portrayed by Glenda Jackson, Stevie escapes her dull middle-class existence through her poetry. Though she takes many a spiritual flight of fancy, she never truly leaves the small apartment wherein all the action of the film takes place. The rest of the cast--all three of them--consists of Mona Washbourne as Stevie's aunt, Alec McCowan as her boyfriend Freddie, and Trevor Howard as "The Man." Stevie is a literal adaptation of the stage play by Hugh Whitemore; the poetic interpolations are from Stevie Smith's own works.

Stevie is a rare, exquisite little movie which grows in stature as it lingers in memory.

Stevie captures this laconic despair, but it also does a great deal more. It gives us a very particular portrait of a woman's life.

A heartbreaking documentary about a ruined life.

Unfortunately, besides the flawless performances I didn't get much else from the film to make it much of a lyrical experience.
