Director: Dominic Cooke • Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff and Emily Watson.
First time director Cooke does true justice to Ian McEwan’s adaptation of his own novella, telling the story of a young couple’s first evening as a married couple, and the disastrous consequences of their inability to form a true bond.Ronan and Howle portray the lovers with subtlety and understatement, backed up by a stellar cast in supporting roles. Beautifully filmed in Oxford, London and on the stark landscape of the beach itself, this is a subtle meditation on confused expectations and lost opportunities.
