Switzerland/Germany, 2022, Eva Vitija

American author Patricia Highsmith (1921-1995) wrote the novels that became such celebrated movies as Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The American Friend, Purple Noon, and Carol. But like her most popular character Tom Ripley, Highsmith led a double life—keeping her lesbianism hidden from her family and fans. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 83 min. https://zeitgeistfilms.com/film/loving-highsmith
