The Long Day Closes is the most gloriously cinematic expression of the unique sensibility of Terence Davies (Distant Voices, Still Lives; The Deep Blue Sea), widely celebrated as Britain's greatest living filmmaker. Bursting with both enchantment and melancholy, this autobiographical film takes on the perspective of a quiet boy growing up lonely in Liverpool in the 1950s. But rather than employ a straightforward narrative, Davies jumps in and out of time, swoops into fantasies and fears, summons memories and dreams. A singular filmic tapestry, The Long Day Closes is an evocative, movie- and music–besotted portrait of the artist as a young man. DUAL-FORMAT BLU-RAY AND DVD SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • New, high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray • Audio commentary by director Terence Davies and director of photography Michael Coulter • Episode from 1992 of the British television series The South Bank Show with Davies, featuring on-set footage from The Long Day Closes and interviews with cast and crew • New interviews with executive producer Colin MacCabe and production designer Christopher Hobbs • Trailer • One Blu-ray and one DVD, with all content available in both formats • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Michael Koresky
