Girl with Green Eyes is a 1964 British drama directed by Desmond Davis and starring Peter Finch, Rita Tushingham, Lynn Redgrave, and Julian Glover. When young Kate Brady (Tushingham) boards with wisecracking Dublin girl Baba Brenna (Redgrave), her na've world is altered by a middle-aged writer named Eugene Gaillard (Finch). Written by Edna O'Brien and based upon her novel titled The Lonely Girl, the film is a realist's portrait of an older man attempting to woo a younger woman. Gaillard takes a strong liking to the young girl, ignoring her more worldly-wise roommate Baba. Kate is unsure of what to do with the newfound attention she is receiving, and her worldview is broadened by Gaillard's advances. Girl with Green Eyes was nominated for a BAFTA award for Best British Actress for Tushingham and Most Promising Newcomer for Redgrave. It also won the Golden Globe Award for Best English-Language Foreign Film.
