From Gay Essential
Released over the course of seven years, The Terence Davies Trilogy centres on the troubled life of a closeted homosexual. Starring Robin Hooper and Valerie Lilley, the motion picture is divided into three different parts: Children (1976), Madonna and Child (1980) and Death and Transfiguration (1983) and was directed and written by Terence Davies.
“The films simply but powerfully examine sexual and emotional repression, Catholic guilt, confusion, grief, and the simmering hatred and despair incubated by a life of fear and lies in the closet.”
— Only In The Cinema
“Not so much an ‘I had it tough’ catalogue of economic and physical hardships as a strangely stirring account of human dignity triumphing over emotional and spiritual confusion.”
— Time Out
“His Trilogy is perhaps his most pure and challenging work, both for him and us, I shouldn’t wonder and it is interesting to consider it in light of what he would come to do in his features.”
