HAYLEY MILLS FOREVER YOUNG A MEMOIR | In conversation with Stash Kirkbride

INTERVIEW

Festival Patron and Oscar winning
actress Hayley Mills last appeared with
us in 2016, and in our 10th anniversary,
she returns with a profile of her brand
new autobiography.

Forever Young is a memoir of a British
child star of the 1960s (and daughter of
Sir John Mills and Mary Hayley Bell) who
won an Oscar for Pollyanna and went
on to make other Walt Disney hits like
The Parent Trap and In Search of the
Castaways, Summer Magic, as well as
the acclaimed 1961 film Whistle Down
the Wind, which celebrates its 60th
Anniversary in 2021.

Hayley Mills’ teenage decade in Hollywood produced some of the era’s greatest coming-of-age family movies and now, for the first time, she tells of those years in her own words.

Forever Young is filled with many fond memories, but also includes mismanagement, bankruptcy, strained family relationships and dislocation. An immensely nostalgic evocation of a bygone era and serves as a frank telling of the reality behind the set dressing – and of Hayley’s survival. Anyone fortunate enough to have been at Hayley’s previous engagement with us will know just how special a human being she is – we’re delighted she’s able to be with us again this year. Hayley will be signing copies of her new book post her interview with the festival’s Artistic Director.
