The Killing of Sister George

The Killing of Sister George
  • 1968
  • US
  • 2h 18min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Robert Aldrich
  • Written by: Lukas Heller, Frank Marcus (play)
  • Cast: Beryl Reid, Susannah York, Coral Browne

Reid plays an ageing actress fired from TV soap, and finding her life in general and her relationship with her girlfriend (York), in particular, collapsing around her. Aldrich, the master of 'Grand Guignol' excess like 'Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?', was entirely the wrong director for this screen version of Frank Marcus's celebrated play, and the result is a leering piece of grotesquerie that lacks compassion or understanding of the central characters.
