Stevie ★★ 1978

Jackson brings her flawless skill to the role of British poet Stevie Smith. Excellent performance from Washbourne as Stevie's spinster aunt. Wooden, lifeless screen rendition for the Hugh Whitemore stage play is helped greatly by good performances, but is too talky and, frankly, rather dull and self-absorbed. 102m/C VHS . GB Glenda Jackson, Mona Washbourne, Alec McCowen, Trevor Howard; D: Robert Enders; C: Frederick A. (Freddie) Young. L.A. Film Critics '78: Support. Actress (Washbourne); Montreal World Film Fest.
