ON CHESIL BEACH
2017, Bleecker Street Media, 110 min, UK, Dir: Dominic Cooke

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, this drama centers on a young English couple in the summer of 1962. Florence Ponting (Saoirse Ronan), born into a prosperous, conservative home presided over by her overbearing father (Samuel West) and mother (Emily Watson), falls in love with Edward Mayhew (Billy Howle) whose chaotic but loving upbringing by a schoolteacher father (Adrian Scarborough) and brain-damaged artist mother (Anne-Marie Duff) stands in stark contrast. Following Florence and Edward through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night.
