For a young actress like Saoirse Ronan she has done a lot in her short career and rightly so she’s finally getting some plaudits. The range of characters she can play naturally is fantastic and for her next movie, On Chesil Beach, we have the first UK Trailer.
The Oscar-nominated actress is no stranger to period pieces and in this movie, it’s a tale of tortured love. A different time, different love as the trailer shows doubts in love, pressures in society and sexism. A story of a young couple (Ronan and Billy Howle) newlyweds fearing the future and tensions they face in their new lives.
This movie looks very deep in emotion, slow-paced.But if you were the age of our lead characters, this movie might just resonate with you…
It is summer 1962, and England is still a year away from huge social changes: Beatlemania, the sexual revolution and the Swinging Sixties. Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle) are just married and honeymooning on the dramatic coastline of Chesil Beach in Dorset. However, the hotel is old fashioned and stifling, and underlying tensions between the young couple surface and cast unexpected shadows over their long-anticipated wedding night.
From the precise depiction of two young lovers to the touching story of how their unexpressed misunderstandings and fears shape the rest of their lives, ON CHESIL BEACH is a tender story which shows how the entire course of a life can be changed, by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.
Ian McEwan has adapted the screenplay from his best-selling novel of the same name, which was shortlisted for the 2007 Booker Prize.
The film’s supporting cast features Anne-Marie Duff (Suffragette), Adrian Scarborough (Vera Drake), Emily Watson (Testament of Youth) and Samuel West (Darkest Hour).
On Chesil Beach will be released in the UK and Ireland on 18 May 2018 through Lionsgate UK.Powered by Sidelines
