Clint Eastwood's first film as star and director, Play Misty for Me is a suspenseful, thrilling film of psychotic sexual obsession.

Eastwood’s suspense thriller is a great example of what has made his subsequent career so lauded and noteworthy. It's effective and efficient, intelligent and sure-handed. Every scene works to the endgame in an economical manner. 

Jessica Walter gives a show-stopping performance as Evelyn, a fan of a local DJ, Dave, (Eastwood) in the coastal city of Carmel, California. What starts out as fandom quickly turns to something darker and obsessive, giving way to a series of surprising, entertaining and shocking turns. You have no choice but to hold on for the ride.

This screening is part of Film Feels: Obsession, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk
