On Chesil Beach

Rated 14 Accompaniment (Disturbing Content, Nudity, Sexual Content) ~ Runs 110 minutes

Dir.: Dominic Cooke, UK

Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Emily Watson

“Edward and Florence, newly-married and very much in love, arrive at a grand old inn on the Dorset coast for their honeymoon; they’ll leave with a very different understanding of who they are and what they actually want out of life. It’s a film about love and the way it sometimes fails, and one that explores the meaning, and necessity, of intimacy in all its forms. Ian McEwan adapts his own novel – for my money his best book – and remains faithful to the text for the most part... The lead actors are both marvellous; Saoirse Ronan (who, coincidentally, rose to prominence thanks to another McEwan adaptation, Atonement) plays the troubled violinist, Florence, while Dunkirk’s Billy Howle is the kind-yet-anger-prone historian Edward. Yet the film’s most impressive performance might come from director Dominic Cooke, who has delivered an assured, wistful debut.” – Mark Medley, The Globe and Mail
