Starring Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine, The Children’s Hour, is a groundbreaking film about lesbian love and its place in society. Though somewhat controversial at the time, the film helped usher filmmakers and film fanatics along the long road to acceptance. Released in 1961, the film is directed by William Wyler.
“Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine, in the leading roles, beautifully complement each other.”
“The Children’s Hour has strong characters whom modern audiences will have no difficulty relating to.”
— Eye For Film
“Before the Cannes hit ‘Carol,’ starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, ‘Children’s Hour’ took a small step toward telling a story about women in love.”
