This film is a beautiful adaptation of James Joyce's autobiographical novel in which the author, through the character of Stephen Dedalus, portrays his youth, his Irish Catholic upbringing, and his coming of age at a Dublin university. Stephen, an intense, serious young man, questions the tyranny of family, state and religion in their attempt to control his body, mind and soul. The young artist chooses a lonely exile in his search for freedom and truth.
