A couple's lives change forever on their wedding day in this Ian McEwan (Atonement) adaptation starring Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) and Billy Howle (Dunkirk).
Now on their honeymoon, Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle) learn about the differences between them – their attitudes, temperaments and their drastically different backgrounds. Out on the beach on their fateful wedding day, one of them makes a major decision that will utterly change both of their lives forever.

Crackerjack script, and performances from the two leads which amount to a master class in great acting.

Adapted from his own novella by Ian McEwan, this is the subtle but cumulatively powerful story of a relationship between two young people in the (mostly rural) England of 1962. The time and place could not be more significant: a rigid and repressed society perched on the edge of liberation. Edward Mayhew (Billy Howle) has recently graduated with a first in History; Florence Ponting (Saoirse Ronan) has done the same in Music. She’s passionate about the classical stuff, he likes Chuck Berry and the blues, and while Edward is from the country Florence is something of an urban toff, albeit with socialist and pacifist leanings. But this is much, much more than a study in contrasts and archetypes: at its best it has the claustrophobic personal intimacy of an Ingmar Bergman tragedy. (James Croot)
One of the most powerful, poignant dramas in years.
