Everything Is Connected - George Eliot's Life
Sunday 10 November 2019, 9pm
Gillian Wearing celebrates George Eliot’s legacy in this new Arena documentary with an original score by Adrian Utley from Portishead.
Just as George Eliot’s Middlemarch explored the lives of everyday men and women, Gillian Wearing’s experimental film is made up of a diverse cast of people from different backgrounds, and features Jason Isaacs and Sheila Atim as the narrators. Together with writers, actors and local people from Nuneaton, Coventry and London they read extracts from George Eliot’s novels, letters and the first-hand accounts of those who knew her. This fascinating documentary paints a polyphonic and unique portrait of the novelist’s unconventional life and reveals the woman behind the literary mask.
