Loving Highsmith at Glasgow Film Theatre

Loving Highsmith

24 – 27 April, 2023

A unique look at the life of celebrated American author Patricia Highsmith through her diaries, notebooks and the intimate reflections of her lovers, friends and family. Focusing on Highsmith’s quest for love and her troubled identity, the film sheds new light on her life and writing. Most of her novels were adapted for the big screen including Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr Ripley and Carol which, partly autobiographic, was the first lesbian story to have a happy ending in 1950s America.

Highsmith herself was forced to lead a double life and had to hide her vibrant love affairs from her family and the public. Only in her unpublished writings did she reflect on the ever-present subject. Excerpts from these notes voiced by Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), beautifully interwoven with archive material of her and her most famous novel adaptations, create a vivid, touching portrait of one of history’s most fascinating writers.

As multilayered as one of Highsmith’s own plots
