Distant Voices, Still Lives
Available on Prime Video, Tubi TV, iTunes
A compassionate look at a radically dysfunctional family set in the 1940s. The son and his mother must endure the casual and overt cruelties of the bull-necked father. The ongoing abuse takes its toll in the form of failed marriages and misguided attempts at seeking security outside the family unit.
