Loving Highsmith (Pride Season)

Double Bill Patricia Highsmith


Loving Highsmith

Suisse-Allemagne 2022 | Eva Vitija | documentaire | vo anglaise | 83’ | digital


This documentary focuses on Highsmith's quest for love and her troubled identity, revealing new or little-known facts about her life and writing.


« Her exes’ memories, strung together, are tender confidences that shape an outline of a woman who never trusted anyone with her heart. Again and again, Highsmith’s craving for connection is thwarted by her competing desire to be an emotionally invulnerable workaholic. Highsmith’s chilliest calculation was correct: She’d inspire more acclaim — and less moral outrage — exposing her murderous hatreds than her strangled loves. » (The New York Times)


« A thorough, measured, often illuminating portrait, aided by readings from Highsmith’s unpublished diaries and interviews with her ex-lovers. » (The Observer)
