A celebrated author best know for her novels ‘Strangers on a Train’ and ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’, Patricia Highsmith lived a double life which required her to hide her vibrant love affairs from her family and the public. Focusing on her troubled identity, this intimate documentary sheds new light on her life and writing through personal diaries and notebooks, and the reflections of her lovers, friends and family.
‘Lays bare the turmoil bubbling beneath Highsmith’s cold image, both enriching and deepening our understanding of her fiction.’
Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
‘In centering the writer’s sexuality in her lively and captivating documentary Loving Highsmith, filmmaker Eva Vitija does a great service not only to fans of Highsmith’s, but to all of queer history.’
Jude Dry, IndieWire

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
