LIFF 2011: Day 16 Video Highlights From BFI 55Th London Film Film Festival

Yesterday The 55th BFI London Film Festival came to a close and BFI have released online the final daily video package vodcast. This years  Festival closed with Terence DaviesThe Deep Blue Sea, his return to fiction feature filmmaking and in this vodcast we hear the thoughts  of director Davies , stars Tom Hiddleston , Jolyon Coy and Sarah Kants .

This deeply-felt drama unfolds in London in the 1950s, a time of rationing and privation as Britain struggles through the aftermath of the Second World War. Hester Collier (Rachel Weisz) leads a privileged life as the beautiful wife of High Court judge Sir William Collyer (Simon Russell Beale), though theirs is a companionable rather than a passionate marriage. When Hester meets a young ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), she falls devastatingly in love with him, and to the shock of those around her she leaves her marriage to live with him in shabby lodgings. But as time passes, Hester comes to realise that the dashing but damaged Freddie is unable to return her all-consuming passion, just as she is unable to return her husband’s love.

I do hope you enjoyed watching the vodcasts and if you want to re watch any of them click on the links below tonights vodcast.
