'Bunce’s directorial style is one of the most memorable elements of this retelling' - Exeposé

Tennessee Williams’ acclaimed Summer and Smoke (1948) is a romance-drama that explores youth and desire, following the lives of spiritual Alma Winemiller, a minister’s daughter, and the charmingly reckless doctor John Buchanan.

Witness the unravelling of the two’s attempt to find a common language of love.

John: You know I like you and I think you’re worth a lot of consideration.

Alma: Why?

John: Because you have a lot of feeling in your heart, and that’s a rare thing. It makes you too easily hurt. Did I hurt you tonight?
