Terence Davies, the esteemed director of The House Of Mirth; Distant Voices, Still Lives; The Deep Blue Sea; The Long Day Closes, and Sunset Song spoke with me on the costume designs by Catherine Marchand for his latest film A Quiet Passion, starring Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson with Jennifer Ehle as her sister Vinnie. Catherine Bailey, Keith Carradine, Duncan Duff, Joanna Bacon, Benjamin Wainwright, Sara Vertongen, Emma Bell, Jodhi May, and Noémie Schellens head a dandy supporting cast.

Hearing Claire Bloom read Dickinson, kidney disease, and Jean-Pierre Léaud in Albert Serra's The Death Of Louis Xiv come up in the second part of a series on my journey with Terence Davies.

Following their success with The Night Manager, AMC and the BBC are reuniting for another John le Carre adaptation, teaming once again with Ink Factory for a limited series based upon his 1963 novel The Spy Who Came in From the Cold, with Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) set to pen the script.

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold takes place during the height of the Cold War and revolved around a hard-drinking British spy who is sent to East Germany posing as a defector in order to frame an East German intelligence operative as a British double agent.
