This coming-of-age story follows a young British boy called Bud (Leigh McCormack) who adores cinema so much that classic films are fused into his narrative. Bud eventually comes to realize his homosexuality in a way echoing filmmaker Terence Davies’ experience. With “The Long Day Closes,” Davies gives us an autobiographical look at his own 1950s Catholic childhood.
