Any type of love comes with its benefits next to many problems and On Chesil Beach is one story of that troubled love.
Starring Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle a newly married young couple married during the social and sexual revolution of the swinging Sixties.
Ian McEwan has adapted the screenplay from his best-selling novel of the same name, which was shortlisted for the 2007 Booker Prize.
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.
