Stevie

Movie Summary

Director:
Robert Enders
Released:
1978
Rating:
PG
Stevie is a 1978 film based on a play by Hugh Whitmore, directed by Robert Enders. It is the story of the real life of poet, Stevie Smith (Glenda Jackson). Stevie lived with her aunt (Mona Washburn) in a grand, genteel estate on Avendale Road. Stevie was a grand, gallant poet who died from a brain tumor in 1979, but not before the tumor had rendered her mute. This is a film about a most extraordinary writer whose talent with words lifted her to the stars. As the movie recalls Stevie's past it tells of her troubled relationships with lover Freddy (Alec McCowen), and her strong-headed aunt. This role gives Glenda Jackson the opportunity to showcase her acting talents and displays the poetry of life in a beautiful way while telling the tale of an extraordinary, solitary poet. Glenda Jackson reprises her famous stage role in this beautifully written and portrayed biopic.
