Terence Davies Has Sorrows
Mother Of Sorrows, that is

Terence Davies Has Sorrows

Given how he seems to be ramping up his output since making The Deep Blue Sea, we’re beginning to wonder whether someone has slipped a dose of five-hour energy boost drink into Terence Davies’ tea. Because hot on the heels of getting passion project Sunset Song inching once more towards cinemas, word comes that he’s also developing a film based on Richard McCann’s Mother Of Sorrows.

McCann’s 2005 debut nabbed the Stonewall Book Award for gay fiction and the John C. Zacharis First Book Award. It interweaves ten stories about two brothers who must deal with the death of their father and the overriding influence of their strong, complicated mother.

"This is an important story because it touches the humanity in all of us," Davies tells Variety. "I love the delicacy of the book and its gentle odyssey from post-World War II optimism for the American utopia to a deeper understanding of both maternal and filial love and an acceptance of mortality by surrendering to the light."

There’s no word yet on when he’ll get to actually shoot Sorrows, since Sunset Song is currently his active project. But maybe he’ll take a leaf out of Terrence’s Malick’s book and go for two movies shot in one year...
