Of Time and the City, Terence Davies’ ode to his hometown of Liverpool, caused critics to go weak in the knees when it premiered at Cannes last May and now Variety reports that it has been picked up by Strand Releasing for a January release in the United States.

North American audiences will get their first crack at the film when it screens at Toronto.

  1. Cool, I remember this one briefly blipping my radar and being intrigued. So hard to keep up with all these smaller releases, so I’m glad to see it getting a mention here.

    Looking forward to it.

  2. Yes there was much buzz at Cannes. On the surface it doesn’t sound like the kind of thing I’d run out to see, but this is one I’ll trust the establishment.

    I think Strand is a pretty tiny distributor though and this could be one of those NY/LA then DVD deals. Don’t quote me on that though.

  3. Well I can tell you I am extremely ecstatic over this one’s eminent release. Davies is one of the cinema’s most passionate stylists, and this opening perfectly coincides with the recent Region 2 BFI release of THE LONG DAY CLOSES. All of Davies’ Liverpool films, of which this new on is as well, are suffused with visual poetry, nostalgia, and an unforgettable elegiac tone.

  4. My dad was born in Liverpool, so I’ll definitely see it with him. Can’t wait.
