Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Two of the greatest motion picture actresses of all time Bette Davis and Lillian Gish unite their legendary talents in this beautifully photographed, intensely emotional drama that offers 'unexpected and quite marvellous rewards'. (The New York Times)

Libby (Davis) and Sarah (Gish) are widowed siblings who have vacationed since children at the seaside cottage in Maine. Now in their eighties and with their husbands and what children they had behind them, they have only each other; Libby blind and resistantly dependent on her sister; Sarah still looking for new ways to see the world.

Their relationship with their old friend Tisha and the arrival of a charming Russian gentleman will bring storms to the already turbulent ocean between them - an ocean which nevertheless runs deep. Starring Bette Davis and Lillian Gish, in what would be her last appearance on the screen; The Whales of August is a superb film and a lasting tribute two of the finest actresses in the history of cinema.
