Loving Highsmith


Loving Highsmith is a unique look at the life of celebrated American author Patricia Highsmith, based on her diaries and notebooks and the intimate reflections of her lovers, friends and family. Focusing on Highsmith’s quest for love and her troubled identity, the film sheds new light on her life and writing. Excerpts from unpublished notes voiced by Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones, Top of the Lake), beautifully interwoven with archive material of her and the film adaptations of her most famous novels (Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Carol), create a vivid, touching portrait of one of the most fascinating female writers of the 20th Century.
