The Children's Hour

The Children's Hour

BFI Special Dual Format DVD and Blu Ray

THE CHILDREN’S HOUR (1961) Director: William Wyler
Stars: Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine & James Garner. Based on Lillian Hellman’s ground-breaking 1934 play (inspired by a true story of two Scottish teachers in 1809), The Children's Hour stars Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine as best friends who run an exclusive girls’ school. When a disruptive pupil starts a rumour that the pair are in a lesbian relationship, there are serious repercussions for everyone. The Children’s Hour was nominated for five Oscars and is a forceful examination of the power of malice and rumour in an intolerant society. Plus many extras.
