The Truth About Women (Box, 1958): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.40pm

This film (also screening on May 28th) is part of the Muriel Box season at BFI Southbank. You can find all the details of the season here.

BFI introduction:
A host of female stars bring to life the many facets of womanhood, as a man in his dotage recounts his many affairs, illustrating that it takes a lifetime to understand the mysteries of the fairer sex. Directed from her own original story, this film is perhaps the ultimate expression of Muriel Box’s feminist ideals, conveying the message that a happy marriage is an equal partnership.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
