Providence synopsis

Clive (John Gielgud), a frequently drunk author in declining health, is busy working on a new book at his Rhode Island home. The characters in his new story are based on his actual family, which includes his wife, Sonia (Ellen Burstyn) ; his illegitimate son, Kevin (David Warner) ; and his son, Claude (Dirk Bogarde). Clive embellishes their personalities, adding heavy symbolism to create a dark, surreal tale. When they all show up for a family meal, we learn about their true natures.
