Synopsis:
In Dublin, two shop assistants share a room. One, Kate (Rita Tushingham) is a quiet, rather naive girl, the other, Baba (Lynn Redgrave) is vivacious and ebullient with an eye for the boys. But when the two befriend a quiet, middle-aged writer (Peter Finch, Network), he makes a beeline for the shy, and lonely Kate. A bittersweet story of an extraordinary romance.

Green eyes in black-and-white - Girl with Green Eyes review by TE

Spoiler Alert
28/01/2021

To enjoy this brisk, bright love story you have to get past the casting of English actors as Irish characters. Once you switch off that nagging issue an interesting period piece is revealed.

This is Ireland approaching the cusp of major change. The bustling, free-thinking morality of the city is set against the doctrinal Catholicism of rural Ireland. Kate's painful progress through a relationship with an older man mirrors this social and cultural upheaval.

Rita Tushingham brings good energy (and big round eyes) to the role of Kate, and Peter Finch is well cast as the suave, man-of-the-world English writer.

The film is based on an Edna O'Brien novel and the moral territory is familiar from many of her books, but this treatment retains a pleasing freshness and zip.
