On Chesil Beach

Friday 22nd June 2018 - Thursday 28th June 2018

In the early 1960s, a young couple on their honeymoon struggle to physically connect. As Florence and Edward settle down for their first dinner as a married couple, a nervous energy fills the air. Impeccably adapted for the screen by Ian McEwan himself, Dominic Cooke’s quietly heart-breaking debut is a work of subtle restraint. Saoirse Ronan shines as the hesitant young bride, ably supported by rising star Billy Howle, both of whom express so much, even when their characters struggle to find the words.

For a film in which emotions remain unspoken and countless feelings are left unsaid, this melancholic love story speaks profoundly about the fragility of human relationships and the destructive nature of silence.

Dir. Dominic Cooke, UK, 2017, 105 mins.
Cast. Saoirse Ronan, Emily Watson, Billy Howle, Samuel West, Anne-Marie Duff.
