On Chesil Beach

Cinema

Directed by Dominic Cooke | 2017 | UK | Starring Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Emily Watson, Anne-Marie Duff, Samuel West, Adrian Scarborough | 110mins | Certificate 15

Saoirse Ronan stars in this beautiful, moving Ian McEwan adaptation.

England, 1962: two young lovers marry and begin their honeymoon on the Dorset coast. Edward (Howle) and Florence (Ronan) hail from very different backgrounds but, deeply in love, the full complexity of their relationship only becomes clear on their wedding night as they struggle to reconcile their approaches to sex.

Confused, uncertain and hopelessly ill-equipped to talk honestly of their fears and desires, they do not yet know that this tragicomic situation will shape the rest of their lives.

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his own Booker Prize-winning novella, the film boasts superb performances across the board, particularly from Saoirse Ronan as the complex heroine.
