Still Life

by Noel Coward

Noel Coward's Still Life was the basis for the 1945 David Lean film Brief Encounter, nominee for three Academy Awards and winner of the Grand Prix at the 1946 Cannes Film Festival. In designing the forthcoming Fall 2007 issue of All-Story, actor Tim Roth mentioned Brief Encounter as a principal inspiration as he prepared for the lead role in Francis Coppola's recently completed film, Youth Without Youth.
