Till Human Voices Wake Us
Helena Bonham Carter and Guy Pearce star in this romantic Australian ghost story, which mixes elements of Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" with the poetic imagery of T.S. Eliot's "Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." After an emotionally restrained psychiatrist (Pearce) saves a suicidal woman (Bonham Carter) from drowning, he unexpectedly begins to confront some painful memories from his teenage youth. Writer Michael Petroni serves up a provocative tale about love and loss in his directorial debut, based on his A.F.I. award-winning screenplay.
